Hi all,

I'm trying to create an index in interbase 7.5 but i'm getting an error. Is there any setting I can change which would allow me to create an index on this large column?

CREATE INDEX keycolindex
ON page_tbl(key_col);

ISC ERROR CODE:335544351

ISC ERROR MESSAGE:
unsuccessful metadata update
key size too big for index KEYCOLINDEX

"KEY_COL" is VARCHAR(255)
