UML Class - Notes Box
« on: November 11, 2015, 08:55:35 am »
Is there a maximum size for this field? We're having an issue with text and hyperlinks disappearing from a notes box in one of our classes.  There are a ton of hyperlinks created in this area - we had to jerry-rig a method to create a Word-based report that EA doesn't provide and can't be created through EA scripting, so a VBA for Word program was written to create what we needed and necessitated a class be created to hold hyperlinks that the VBA program reads - and I'm thinking the reason for the random link disappearances is that we're bumping up against the maximum size of this field.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Depends on the RDBMS you're using. Have a look in the CREATE script to see what size t_object.notes has. Eventually you can make it a memo field but on your own risk (memory overflow inside EA might be a side affect). I remember several threads where people asked to extend fields. Don't know what the outcome was in the single cases.
