   Thanks. What I did is select and then do a LIKE : so in your example it will 
be : 

select *
  2     from r
  3     where r like '7261772076616C756'||'%';

Obviously : some issue with that. So I will try to do a double conversion.   

Can you tell how I can convert  
'7261772076616C7565' to 'raw value'.

It is would be nice if you could provide an example, but I'll take a
bet and guess that you're stuffing % in a wrong place...

it works

SQL> create table r (r raw(32));

Table created.

SQL> insert into r values (utl_raw.cast_to_raw('raw value'));

1 row created.

SQL> insert into r values (utl_raw.cast_to_raw('raw value again'));

1 row created.

SQL> commit;

Commit complete.

SQL> select *
  2     from r
  3     where r like utl_raw.cast_to_raw('raw')||'%';
