2349625 - Text data type in ASE: Why does a "text" column accept only 16384 bytes sometimes


In some cases, you could try to insert a string into a text column using command "insert ... values ...". If the string value you would like to insert is longer than 16384 bytes, 
and  the specified value for the text column is a string variable or a string expression concatenating multiple substrings with operator "+", you will encounter a problem,
that is, the maximum size allowed to be inserted into the text column is only 16384 bytes, the other part of string longer than 16384 bytes will be truncated automatically
by ASE server, and no any error or warning message is raised. You will find the problem when checking the length of text column using function len().
