    Under Field Properties, what is the difference between Size and Max Size?

    Asked by bssrc on April 13, 2012 at 11:57 AM

    The description under the Size setting says it to "Set the number of characters users can enter" and the Max Size setting says "Maximum allowed characters for this field".  To me that is the same thing, but if I set a field for a size of "2' (like a state abriviation) I can still put more carcaters in unless I set the Max Size.  What does the Size setting do?

    Hi,

     

    Size is a "width" fields. You can set it as you need.

    Max Size is a characters limits that your customer can insert.

     

    Hope it helps.
