How To Increase the Length of a Text Field? (Doc ID 2180545.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 A WebCenter Content Text field is set a VARCHAR2(30 CHAR).

That may not be long enough and may generate errors during check ins.

As an example:

The length of the field can be increased by changing the Text field to be a Long Text or Memo field.

Long text will set the field to VARCHAR(200).

Memo (like the xComments field) will set the field to VARCHAR(2000).

And a Long Text field can be changed to a Memo field.
