I wonder what this means?

I’m trying to submit my comments on Secure Flight.

When I try to upload my file to, I’m told:

An error occured while attempting to upload your comment
[Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]ORA-01401: inserted value too large for column

I’ve submitted a request for help via the provided link.
