Data type: variables of this type should hold maximum amount of data

Dear all,

In SAP we have any field like Richtext field in Lotunotes, which can hold anyamount of data, I mean it can store arbitary amount of data based on the input.

I have came across certain fileds called LCHR, but it has got a limitation. Fields of this type must be located at the end of transparent tables (in each table there can be only one such field) and must be preceded by a length field of type INT2.

But I need to know about a field which can hold maximum amount of data at a time.

Regards,

Giri

    Hi Ramada,

    starting with ECC600 and in all unicode systems the length of a character is system-dependent.

    Fields of type STRING store an arbitrary amount of characters, type XSTRING stores an arbitrary amount of BYTES.

    AFAIK a Notes Richtext field will hold much more: formatting, data and document type an what else.

    There is nothing directly comparable in ABAP.
