We have tables created from a clipper app that created
some CHAR fields with field length of 1024.
Is it possible to read/update/insert in those tables with
If we try to CREATE such a table using HXTT, the result
is always a length of 255.
The standard max char length is 255. Your Clipper application should be a variable. Please let us know more information about your Clipper application.
>Is it possible to read/update/insert in those tables with HXTT driver?
You can try it. If failed, you can send us some dbf samples.
Clipper app is developed using ALASKA XBase environment
and creates/uses CHAR columns up to 1024 characters.
We also use DBU tool to create/maintain DBF tables;
also no problems with char columns more than 255 characters
Inserting text into a dbf with a CHAR column of i.e. 1024
character length using HXTT driver sets this column to all spaces;
no error is generated. Where to send such a dbf?
v4.0.034 supports to create 255~1024 length varchar column for Clipper. It will be release after about 48 hours.
