After making a change to a text field in Web Workspace and pressing Save, the save fails but the operator gets no indicator as to why.

At the same time as the attempted save, the error "ORA-12899: value too large for column [database].[table name].[column name]" (actual: ###, maximum: ###)  appears in one of the DBService logs (most likely TCDBService)


ORA-12899: value too large for column [database].[table name].[column name]
