incorrect error flagged in Editor - sort of

DECLARE yyyymmdd VARCHAR2(8) := ‘&&yyyymmdd’; –


1st line is flagged as having an error “string initializer is too long”. It’s not really an error, unless you run it as a script with SET DEFINE OFF.

I can certainly continue to ignore the error indicator, but thought I’d mention it, since it did surprise me the 1st time I saw it.
