LONG problems in forms [message #394073] Wed, 25 March 2009 11:04 Go to next message

We currently have a LONG field in a form that is mapped to a long field in a table.

The long field cannot hold enough data for our needs.

We've tried changing the long field to a LONG RAW on the database. When we do this we're not sure what to set the data type to in the form.

We've tried creating a test table with a LONG RAW field and then a test form where an object is based on that table. The item that is mapped to the LONG RAW field defaults to an image item.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Why LONG_RAW?

It doesn't store the same type of data as LONG - CLOB would seem a more obvious choice.

I suspect that forms is limiting you here rather than the DB, since a CLOB appears to map to LONG in forms as well.
