    There used to be a limitation of storing up to 1500 characters in Application Server(Please note AL11 is simply a  too to display application server file and only displays 255 characters) in release 46C. Not sure if it still valid. A quick program can be written to check this in newer version.

      Yeah ,  i know that the files are stored in Application Server  and AL11 is the T-CODE to search the directories and files  stored on the AS .
      In fact AL11  has its own limit on displaying max 512  char/line ,
      and when I posted this question  I thought same limitations would affect even the storage of a file in AS , but now that's clear , thanks again 😉  .
