DDL of target table

Screen shot deleted - do not post screen shots as all they do is introduce clutter.
Using copy/paste from the terminal screen and applying the "Code" tag provides an aligned "screen".

Also, is there any ideal SQL data choice and modifier to LOAD the long message output properly into the new table column(my target location). I dont want it to overflow to 2 lines and not show half or broken either.

So, are you saying:
  1. That your messages are more than 150 characters in length?
  2. That your terminal emulator won't display 150 characters at a single time?
  3. Something else?

but which one of the 3 options? And if the 3rd is included then describe 'something else'
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
