RE: Maximum Field Size for String

I believe there is a maximum, the alternative would be to use media objects.
There have been a couple of threads in the past few months about loading
large text media objects.

In the standard datadictionary there is a data item AttributesData (alias = ISTDATA) with a var.length of 30000 characters.
You can use this one or create one yourself (with even more characters).
