Hi,

Any chance you could advise what could be the char limit for actual field/col names in a report?

Thanks,

Nick

Hi Nick,

It is my understanding that the limits come directly from the metadata column sizes in the Yellowfin Config DB. Looking at a SQL Server instance I can see that the actual column name (the name that is returned from the Data Source database) is limited to 256 characters. The Short Description (ie the name visible to the end user) is set at a max of 4000 characters.

Are you running into an issue with a particular column from the Data Source itself?

Cheers,

Neal

Hi Neal,

Thanks for the quick response.

Not entire sure myself as this was a query from a user. No issue reported.

Thanks,
