Structure & is too wide for downloading to MS Access (max. 2048 charact.)

Message type: E = Error

Message class: IH - structuring

Message number: 666

Message text: Structure & is too wide for downloading to MS Access (max. 2048 charact.)



What causes this issue?

You have tried to export a list to MS Access.
You can only export tables with a maximum width of 2048 characters to
MS Access. For technical reasons, only the entire structure can be
exported even if you have not selected all the fields.
If a structure contains more than 2048 characters when you try to
download (for example, because customer-specific fields have been
added), you cannot export the data to MS Access.


System Response

The data cannot be downloaded to MS Access.


How to fix this error?

If possible, export the list to MS Excel as only selected columns are
exported.


Procedure for System Administrators

The structure you want to export cannot exceed 2048 characters. Note
that some fields require more characters when they are converted than
when they are saved internally (for example, separators are added
between day, month and year for data fields).
