Longer length fields in DQL

Postby robb » Mon May 16, 2011 4:01 pm

I am trying to use the ShellExecuteA dll to send e-mails. As Windows prevents any attachments being added in any sensible manner i am trying to put what i need in the body of the email but it keeps getting chopped off at 255 i assume due to the length of the text field in DataEase, is there a way of getting longer fields? Or is it that the ShellExecuteA dll has restrictions on it?

Robb, the limit is dataease (and FFenics). You can't have strings longer than 255 characters with functions.

I discussed using an alternative strategy in this thread:

and I expanded on this posting in my newsletter, which you can sign up to at:

and then search the archive for newsletters from the end of last year.
