Reply with quote

Hi,
I have a requirement to change a column length. The coloumn data type is BLOB. Currently it has length of 2 MB. Now i want to increase to 5MB.
I know we can increase the size, but what will happen to existing data. Do it need any conversion to place into new coloumn?
Please suggest me.

Thanks,
Hari

Hari,

BLOB is a varying-length string, so i don't think there will be a problem in increasing the size. So, nothing will happen to the existing data.

Thanks,
Sushanth
