    Hi,

    Unfortunately, a characteristic can be created with a maximum length of 18 characters. The only workaround would be to create an user-defined characteristic of length CHAR18, and then fill it with the first 18 positions of the source field by derivation.

    HI,

    delete it and create it again (Hopefully you do not have documents posted), there is no change option.
