Coldfusion 8 query not reading all (or truncating) results from table

   I running a pretty simple query below that returns 64000 characters, even though there are 383647 characters in the table.   I don't receive any errors.

  <cfquery name="getIDListQuery" datasource="#dbName#" username="#dbUserName#" password="#dbPassword#">
                idlist_id = <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_varchar" value="#URL.id#" />

  If the character count is less than 64000, then it processes fine, but anything over 64000 gets truncated.

  NOTE:  I've switched between "integer" and "varchar" with no change in the results.

  Any assistance appreciated.

You need to enable CLOB fields in the datasource. Otherwise CF will limit the results to 64K.

CF Administrator => Select the datasource => Advance settings
Check Enable long text retrieval (CLOB)
