Field Name Size Restricted in Properties Editor in Designer

Created: 10 Aug 2006

                        The information in this article applies to:

Product: Metastorm BPM (e-Work)
                                Version: 6.6.x 7


  • When the name of a form field is entered in the Properties Editor in the Designer, the maximum number of characters that can be entered is 20. Is this the maximum length that's permitted?


  • No, the maximum length is 63, which is determined by the size of the column eFieldName in the table eField                                 in the database.

    If a field name longer than 20 characters is desired, rename the field using the Procedure Explorer. Right-click on the field, select Rename, and enter the name, up to a maximum of 63 characters. If more than 63 characters are entered, the procedure                                 will fail to publish with an error specifying the field name size.

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.
