Length Of Fields CMN_HELP_TEXT.HELP_FIELD_TEXT And CMN_HELP_TEXT.HELP_FIELD_TEXT_J Only 200 Characters (Doc ID 2635253.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Argus Safety - Version 8.2.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The length of the database fields CMN_HELP_TEXT.HELP_FIELD_TEXT and CMN_HELP_TEXT.HELP_FIELD_TEXT_J is 1000 characters.

However, the "Help Text" fields are multi-line fields that truncate the Help Text after 200 characters when entering in the User Interface.

This is often not long enough to supply required help information needed.

Why is there a restriction in the UI ?
