A_SYB_MAX_CHARACTERS indicates the maximum number of bytes Acu4GL allows in a table row.
Sybase places a limit on the number of bytes per table row. The Acu4GL product adheres to this limit, but sometimes it cannot accurately count how many bytes a particular row contains (because of overhead bytes that Sybase adds). This variable enables the developer to set the Acu4GL product’s upper bound.
You might want to try reducing it if you discover that a row cannot be added to a table. By reducing the upper bound, you may be able to prevent this problem.
If Sybase increases the maximum number of bytes allowed in a row (in a future release of the Sybase product), you can increase the value of this variable to take advantage of the new limit.
The A_SYB_MAX_CHARACTERS variable has a default value of 1962.
