Why do I get the error, "String is longer than the corresponding database column allows", when attempting to perform a database migration using StarTeam?
This error is caused by some of the fields in the database table being longer than the maximum length that is allowed by StarTeam.
The database fields do in fact allow more than 254 characters, however, this is for internal StarTeam use only and not for holding data.This error is flagged due to data being stored in the database field with an invalid length that does not comply with StarTeam.
Please contact Borland support to help identify the affected database table(s) and assist with the correction of this data. A copy of your database will need to be supplied to Technical Support.
