    Meaning if the field "could" be 30 characters long and only 5 are inserted the other 25 are SPACES! That is so so annoying when I am trying to pull data out.

    Is the issue pulling data from the Delphi front end or from your own perl scripts? If the latter then look at ora_ph_type which should resolve your problem for you. Also check out the ChopBlanks attribute as well - you will almost always want to use it.

    If you are talking about Delphi then please ignore...
