To let Report Definition show string length more than 32
Developers are viewing truncated strings while retrieving data through report definitions. Observing a + sign at the end of string which has more than 31 characters.
This issue is resolved through the following local-change:
The column size in DB is specified as 32 byte. Hence the data itself is truncated in DB and + sign exists at the end.
There is no issue with Report Definition.
Requested to update the column size and also informed that it is better to use datatype as character than byte.
“If you define the field as VARCHAR2(32 BYTE), Oracle can use up to 32 bytes for storage, but you may not actually be able to store 32 characters in the field, because some of them take more than one byte to store, for example non-English characters.
By defining the field as VARCHAR2(32 CHAR) you tell Oracle it can use enough space to store 32 characters, no matter how many bytes it takes to store each one. A single character may require up to 4 bytes.”
