data type String

Hi, experts.!

I'm writing to ask about data type String in Cloud Applications Studio.

I heard that Long is 80 characters, Extended is 255 characters.

But, If i want to use over 255 characters, then what kind of String type is available?

I want to use burst data type.

I looking forward to your rapid supports.

Thanks and Regards,

Deokhyeon.

    Hello Deok,

    As instructed in the SAP studio documentation, you can use either TextCollection or LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text.

    "If you use LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text data type in a business object extension, the length of the corresponding field is not restricted to a specific number of characters. Only in business object definitions, the field length is restricted to 255 characters.

    Variables of unrestricted length, for example, variables of the LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_Text data type, are truncated at a length of 255 characters as soon as they are saved to the database. For texts that are longer than 255 characters, use the TextCollection dependent object."

    Regards,

    Senthil
