I am having a problem with character length. I was told by IBI that there is no limit restriction, so either it is a bug or my problem. Here is a repro of our problem.
Essentially I have a comment field that allows for 2000 characters, then I pull that data from the DB into a WF report. What I get when I try to run it in PDF ONLY (Excel works, DOC works, and HTML works) is an EOF Exception. It will work up to about 1000 characters and cut off the rest, why doesn't 2000 work?
Can anyone help? Here is the repro:
DEFINE FILE CAR MY1/A50 WITH CAR = '1234567 101234567 201234567 301234567 401234567 50'; MY2/A500 = MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1 | MY1; MY3/A2000 = MY2 | MY2 | MY2 | MY2; MY4/A2000 = MY2 | MY2; END TABLE FILE CAR PRINT MY3 -* this works PRINT MY4 ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1 END
