truncated text

When imputing data from an Oracle database, one of the text fields gets truncated in half regardless of the length of the string, e.g., 6 characters or 666 get truncated into 3 and 333, respectively. The data type for that field is set as V_WString, so it shouldn't truncate anything. It happens regardless whether I just browse through the data in alteryx or export it. It exports truncated. As a cross-check, I used SAS to export that same data and it does not get truncated. So, I'm really puzzled to why that happens.
