When building a dynamic listbox in HTML composer Parameters tab in Dev Studio, I keep encountering this error ((FOC209) THE DATA VALUE EXCEEDS ITS LENGTH SPECIFICATION) it then list the fieldname after the error. Any ideas as to why this is happening or how to correct? The field in table itself i'm wanting to use is only about 1000 records. Is it a problem with the mfd?

This message usually occurs with master file descriptions that describe comma-delimited text files. At least one of the values in the field mentioned in the error message has more characters between the sets of commas than allowed for in the description of the field in the master file. You could have one or more bad records in the text file, or your master file description may need to be adjusted.
