- It is true that the field that contains the item description is 2000 bytes long, but the number of characters is going to depend on the type of encoding used in the database. For example UTF-8 characters are 2 bytes each which means that characters take at least 2 bytes each in the field. When using UTF -8 many special characters take more than 2 bytes, so for the Item Description at most the field will hold 1000 characters.
