Data field size


#1

Brand new to Toad. I don’t even have it loaded yet. Just looking to see if it serves a need I have to fill. Question: What is the maximum data field size in Toad? E.g. Number of characters before it gets truncated? I’ve looked everywhere for the answer…

What is your use case? What are you trying to accomplish? Our Dev team can correct me, but max field sizes are not constrained by Toad that I know of, but is a function of your database implementation. I just did a demo yesterday where I had Toad’s data grid showing pictures within the grid, if that helps.

Yes and No. Lengths of varchars and text types are controlled by the database. There are some numerical types that are larger than what .net can handle and these are truncated. These are very rare and very few occurrences.
