SD4.5 Data export - 255 character limit?

Using SD 4.5, SP19

I'm using the data exchange exporter to pull data from an .XLS file using the Excel ODBC driver.

It's working fine, except some of the longer text strings are being truncated to 255 characters in the .XML file.

Is this a hard-coded limit? Or is there somewhere where I can bypass this?

Thanks,

I know the voices in my head aren't real, but they still have some REALLY FUN ideas.

Hello Dean,

I had the same problem but the solution is quite simple: make sure that the columns that contain the large strings are formated as text.
