Data Type in SAP C4C to maintain more than 255 characters

Hello all

We have a requirement in C4C where-in we need to store more than 255 (about 3000 char) chars in a single element but we are not able to find any data type with storage capacity of more than 255 characters.

We tried creating this field through the SDK.

Do let us know for some pointers.

Thanks and regards,

Nikhil Pais

    Hi there.

    If you're working with a .xbo I believe you can create it with KUT as a multi-line field.

    If you're working with a custom .bo you can try to use TextCollection node https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3541845

    Best regards.

    Hello Alexandre,

    We are maintaining data in a node as line items, have attached a screenshot below. If we now use, TextCollection in place of Particular(element) than we will not be able to access the functionality of Add Row as marked in screenshot.

    Also we have to bind this node to a dynamic table in Adobe Forms and using TextCollection node will cause issues during node binding. Our requirement is to store more than 255 char in the Particular field element(refer screenshot) and then bind the node(Society Charges) with dynamic table in Adobe form.

    Any inputs on this will be much appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,

    hi Alexandre,

    Thanks for the url link regarding TextCollection. However, what I have noticed is - TextCollection does not get exposed in the WebService and not there in the WSDL. Any ideas please?

    Thanks
