this function module creates a message containing whatever text you want but only upto a limit of 200 characters. Actually it cheats the system by creating a message and breaking up the free text into 4 chunks of 50 charatcers, 1 chunk for each of the 4 symsgv variables. It uses message class BL and message 001 which is defined as & & & &, so it's completely free-format.

If you want to have a bigger field you'll need to use another technique altogether.
