Attribute limit?

Postby BT454 » Thu Dec 19, 2019 8:23 am

Is there a character maximum/limit for attributes fields, or is there an option where a maximum number of characters for an attribute can be adjusted/increased?

I don't think there's an explicit limit on attributes. The theoretical limit of our string class (internal code) is 4.2 billion characters. Of course that's constrained by the amount of memory you have.

Unrelated to attribute values, Alpha string objects are limited to the number of characters you define as the max in General Options->Series and Alphas->Alpha truncation (default is 80 characters).
