Re: ORA-01406: fetched column value was truncated

It is actualy just a select statement.  If I run the statement alone, it does 
not error, but when run through Informatica, it generates error.

SELECT S_ASGN_GRP.PR_POSTN_ID AS PR_POSTN_ID, UPPER(ITEM_COUNTRY.LO_CHAR1) AS 
COUNTRY, ITEM_ZIPCODE.LO_CHAR1 AS LO_ZIPCODE FROM
S_ASGN_GRP,
S_ASGN_RULE RULE_ZIPCODE,
S_ASGN_RULE RULE_COUNTRY,
S_ASGN_RULE_ITEM ITEM_ZIPCODE,
S_ASGN_RULE_ITEM ITEM_COUNTRY
WHERE
ITEM_ZIPCODE.ASGN_RULE_ID = RULE_ZIPCODE.ROW_ID AND
RULE_ZIPCODE.ITEM_TYPE_NAME = 'Account Zip Code' AND
RULE_ZIPCODE.ASGN_GRP_ID = RULE_COUNTRY.ASGN_GRP_ID AND
RULE_COUNTRY.ITEM_TYPE_NAME = 'Account Country' AND
RULE_COUNTRY.ROW_ID = ITEM_COUNTRY.ASGN_RULE_ID AND
RULE_ZIPCODE.ASGN_GRP_ID = S_ASGN_GRP.ROW_ID AND 
S_ASGN_GRP.NAME LIKE 'ECC%' ORDER BY COUNTRY,LO_ZIPCODE,PR_POSTN_ID
Function: Fetch
Error: ORA-01406: fetched column value was truncated
