You have an Oracle database with unicode encoding. All text fields are of the datatype NVARCHAR2.  You want to add a new field to the system and define it as a memo type but with a size of 10,000 instead of 1024. You can update the admin server configuration to have MemoFieldSize=10000, however you cannot change the field definition in the database since the NVARCHAR2 type does not expand past 2000 characters.  What datatype can you use?
