Is there a limit to the number of characters in a text field? Coming from an Oracle database, text fields where stored as a VARCHAR type, meaning variable character lenght. This way the only data storage required was the actual size of the data in the field. While some of the records in my custom database may have only one or two sentences in a comments field, others may have many paragraphs.. maybe even 12K characters or more.
Question: Can I input the text data, be it large or small, into a database field? or should I put the textual info into a hidden html page that is linked in the database?
