Hi everyone,
I need help urgently. How can I display text in the form that I need ,using datastore or datawindow, if size of
that text is more that 32K ?
What I am trying to do is display the text in the datastore so it can be readable, I don't have to scroll right / left to read it.So for that I am using a loop wich is cutting the text by the size of the field from datastore and then going to the next line.When the size of the notes are more than 32 K - it gives me negartive value and goes out of the loop.I have a datastore with one string field with size 32766. And if text is more than that limit I have a problem.Any ideas ?
thanks in advance

For all the variables I had to use Long instead of Integer
And the loop is working fine.
