Hi,

Is there any maximum limit to the line size that a file can have in Open dataset?

    HI Kriththika,

    The limit is 256 characters, if you open the file in application server.

    Download the file to presentation server using transaction CG3Y & then check.

    None of the field would be truncated.

    Best regards,

    Prashant

    Hi

    Maximum line size is 1023 and you can only print upto 255 characters.

    LINE-SIZE col

    Formats the new page with the number of columns specified in col, except in the case of LINE-SIZE = 0 which indicates line length set by the system according to the standard window width.

    The addition ... LINE-SIZE col is only effective on the new page if it is also the first page of a new list level.

    The addition works only before initialization of the new list level (with WRITE, SKIP, ...).

    For the default setting use the addition ... LINE-SIZE in the REPORT statement.

    The maximum line length is 1023. You should keep list width to the miniumum possible. This improves useability and performance, and makes the list easier to print (recommendation: LINE-SIZE < 132). For very wide (LINE-SIZE > 255) lists, see the notes for using LINE-SIZE greater than 255.
