E1: FDA: Getting Error "Exceeding Data Item Length Error (088O)" on UDC Dropdown field in TR 9.2.X (Doc ID 2374731.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 10, 2019

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9.1 to 9.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After upgrading Tools Release from to, and also after applying the fix for <Bug 27056170> to resolve the issue mentioned in <Document 2329173.1> - E1: FDA: UDC Dropdown Does Not Display List of Values Data In Input Capable Grid Forms,  users are experiencing the error "Exceeding Data Item Length Error (088O)" on custom UDCs when running custom applications on the web client.

This issue occurs only when the UDC code type length is not the same size as the form field length. Example, if the UDC code type length is defined as 10 but on the form, the field length is only 1, after the UDC value is selected from the UDC dropdown list, user receives the 088O error. 


1. A custom UDC 56|IS is defined. The code type length for IS is 10.


2. In a custom application, the field Complexity Score (Data Item Alias: ANFL) is set to use this UDC 56|IS. ANFL is a character data type whose length is only 1.


3. With UDC Dropdown enabled for this field, when user select a value from the UDC dropdown list, let say the value 1. It returns back to the screen as "1 " with 9 spaces behind. When user tab out of the field it will display the error "Exceeding Data Item Length Error (088O)".


4. If user click on the Search link in UDC Dropdown and then select the save value, it will return to the screen as "1" with no spaces behind. There is no error.

This issue does not occur in tools release.


Upgraded tools release from to and applied fix for <Bug 27056170>.
