 [CASE OPENED] Maximum Limit of Alphanumeric Define/Compute Fields
Master
 posted July 20, 2015 03:53 AM
As per documentation(WF8), maximum limit for alpha fields is 4095 characters.

But below sample code uses around 30,000 for field XYZ_1 and it still works fine in 8009.

Any one foresee any issues with beyond 4K characters?

The 4095 limit is a storage limit for fixed format files, 3968 is for FOCUS file storage and 4096 for XFOCUS field storage.

There is a 32k (roughly) limit that is for SQL field actual/usage, so WF is built to handle this length of Alpha fields.

Hi Ram,

Just reopening this.. What can be the maximum length that Alphanumeric can hold. i.e. A&listbox6.LENGTH

-SET &Phone_no = STRREP(&listbox6.LENGTH,&listbox6,02,'OR',1,',',&listbox6.LENGTH,'A&listbox6.LENGTH');

Thanks,
Ramya

Hi Ram

The function is not happening if the value exceeds A4096

Thanks,
Ramya
