How many characters are allowed by default in PDWare standard and user defined fields? Can this be increased?

Most PDWare databases are set up with 32 characters as the default for user defined field length. Default length for predefined fields varies.  If an error occurs during Database > Save Data and the message includes notice of “truncating data,” it typically indicates that the save includes data exceeding a column’s field size. To increase field lengths, please contact your internal company PDWare administrator.  The administrator will arrange for an IT database administrator to make the modifications to the database.
