Hi

You can use the Datatypes RAW and LRAW for this purpose.

Welcome to SDN.

Use data element CHAR1024 or CHAR1250.

Hi,

Change field type as predeifned type STRING and specify field length.

This will do.

Hi Dhanashree,

If you are using raw as data type the length should not exceed 255 .

Even though we are able to create domain and subsequently data elements fo having length more than 255 but we cannot use those in fields of table.

Thus kindly try to break the field into many componants.
