Blogs field limits

This topic lists character input limits for key Blogs fields.


The field limits are listed for single-byte languages. They will vary for multi-byte languages. For example, a field that holds a text string up to 255 characters in a single-byte language might hold a text string up to only 128 characters in a double-byte language. The length may also vary based on the database type. For example, the length limit for a blog name is 255 bytes in DB2® and Oracle, and 255 characters in SQL server. The following limits are based on DB2.
