How to get more than 255 characters in variable

Dear All,

I have one requirement in smartform. I have declared variable in Global definition. I need to display 700-800 characters in variable. I am doing concatenate mutiple text in one variable. I have defined data type as STRING/CHAR and tried other std datatype like ORA_DBA_RESUMABLE_SQL_TEXT_ORG / Text1000 for above variable. But during concatenation when characters reach 255 then nothing will contenate.It seems only 255 charactes.

Now what is possibilities in above problem. Please help me.

    Did you actually see, while debugging, that the string or lchar field is empty or space from 256th characters on, or did you only get the first 255 characters of the field in the print/print preview ?
