Modify string field length

You can modify the maximum character limit for a string field.

Before you begin

Role required: personalize_dictionary

About this task


  1. Right-click the field label in the form and select Configure Dictionary.
  2. Change the Max length field to the desired length.
    Note: You can change between string-based data types as long as length changes do not cause any data loss from truncation. For example, you can change from a MEDIUM database type to a VARCHAR(100) database type if none of the existing data is greater than 100.
  3. Click Update.
    The system cancels any length change that results in data loss due to truncation.
