PC File Data Source - Row Size Limit

Hi

Is there a limit to the row size of a csv or txt file being uploaded via a PC File Data Source into BW ? Possibly 256 characters ? If so, is there a way around it ?

    Hi John,

    I beleive there is a limitation on 65K rows in when you load from a CSV filew as it based on Microsoft Excel.

    Hi John,

    I dont think there is a limit. Are you facing any issues. I guess for Idoc there is a limit of around 1000 bytes per record.

    Bye

    Thanks but I meant the row width rather than the number of rows.

    Is there some sort of limit to how wide a record can be when uploading froma PC_File Data Source ?

    It seems that when a record is 256 characters wide (or even nearly 256 characters wide) when uploading a file, BW is truncating the record, leaving out the last field(s).
