I need to know where to find limitations on size of record in characters say for a string field and or a memo field, (is it limited to 254) how dates are formatted. Anything related to the fields records character limits formatting etc for a database like php /my admin

If you were to know offhand what the limits of a memo fields are in character length that would be helpful. Thank you.
