ERROR: "ORA-01461: can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column" while running an event in DIH
Problem Description
In Data Integration Hub (DIH), while running an event, the following error is displayed: 

ORA-014​61: can bind a LONG value only for insert into a LONG column​
This issue occurs if you attempt to insert data having MBCS characters into a Varchar2 column.

This would not work as those characters (for instance, Chinese or Japanese characters) cannot be directly inserted as LONG, LONG RAW datatypes.

To resolve this issue, after making sure that the value being inserted in are having MBCS and are correct, change the datatype of the column in question to CLOB datatype.

This would not affect the DIH services as the alteration only needs to be done to the staging database and the data would not be lost in anyway.
