Comment text not saving to configured length value

Hi all,

I'm experiencing a problem in BPC 10.0 NW (SAPK-80102INCPMBPC) with the saving of comments/text in one Model.

When I use the EPMSaveComment formula to save some text that exceeds 255 characters, it ignores the characters from 256 onwards. Now you're obviously going to think that it's because the Comment Length has not been set via the Web Front End > Administration > Models > ..., but as you will see from the image below the length has been set to the maximum 1332.

I have retested the functionality in a new clean adhoc worksheet and can confirm that it's not to do with the template we're using. I have also tested it in the QA and DEV clients, only to find that in our Development client it is working as it should be (all three clients are configured the same with 1332 chars) but the QA and PROD clients are somehow stuck at a maximum of 255 characters.

Any thoughts/solutions would be most welcome.

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Vadim, but I've already seen that one and I'm pretty sure it's not relevant. This I believe was the original note to apply when the maximum length was increased by SAP. The patch level of my system is the equivalent of SP9 (801 0002) whereas the note suggests upgrading to SP5 (which we're already past).

    Our system already has the capability to use 1332 characters and we are already successfully using this many characters on another Environment in our Production client with no problem, so the cause has to be something else.

    The system is live and working perfectly except for this one annoying issue, which inconsistently is not a problem in our development client. The whole Environment was transported through the normal BW transport tool to our QA and then Production clients and it's only just come to our attention that this is one small bit is not working properly.
