DatabaseException: String or binary data would be truncated



DatabaseException occurs when saving a Case Note to a new database table.

Error Messages

DatabaseException: String or binary data would be truncated

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a new database table which is identical to the pc_data_workattach table.
  2. Perform the data-admin-db-table (DABT) mapping to map the identical table with the Data-WorkAttach-Note class.
  3. Test the Attach a Note (local action) feature for the case.

Root Cause

DatabaseException occurred while a note was attached to the case. This exception indicated that when a note was added to the database table, the column data size was larger than the column size. In the newly created table, the pzPVStream BLOB column size was set to 1.  This resulted in the exception.


As a local-change, modify the pzPVStream BLOB column size to dynamic length.
