So I've tried many different things from the alteryx forums to fix this. But I have a column that's the description for a youtube video. But it keeps telling me this cell has >256 characters. I tried using different data types, I'm using the text input so I can't change the length in that. I have a summary tool, and thinking that might be causing it.
I recently encountered this issue and was concerned that I was losing data, then came across this post. I still received the '256 characters' message when viewing the data in a browse tool but could see in the cell viewer that it was not being truncated as well as the output including all of the data.
i am lost . how can i increase size in the input tool ? the buffer does not read beyond certain number of characters per field irrespective of text file field size which i have specified as . it only reads some random size and throws everything out
