Hi Peter,

> How do I configure TV to do that? (I'm using TV V. 1.6.0)

Basically, you have to make sure
typo3conf/ext/templavoila/ext_tables.sql is modified, otherwise TYPO3
will complain that "type" does not match.

And then you have to manually take care of modifying the DB to change
the type. You may start by modifying ext_tables.sql, see how TYPO3 wants
to "ALTER" your schema and do it manually as AFAIR you won't be able to
ALTER the column type with Oracle.

Easiest way I guess would be to "backup" your content somehow (using
external tools), delete the two columns and recreate them from within
TYPO3, this way you are totally sure they are created the way it should :)
