Our Knowledge Base covers a wide variety of technical topics, from the basic to the complex.
How can I set the maximum length for a text field?
You can limit the number of characters end users can enter or store in a field. Use this feature to help avoid data-entry mistakes in text fields. Carriage returns count as one character. To learn how, please see our Set Maximum Length for Entries in a Text Field help topic.
Be aware that if you choose to put a character limit on a text field that is set to append, QuickBase will add up all characters entered into the field, which includes the history contained in the field as well as the user name and time stamp marking each entry.
