DataStage® Release: 11x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Additional info: 11.3.1.2
Some of our customers are having difficulties summarizing terms' Long Descriptions into the Short Description field.

Quote:
Short Description
A brief description of the term (up to 255 characters). Short descriptions are used in searches.


Is there any way to increase the Short Description limit for terms?

No. The 255 for short description is a fixed length.

Have your teenager rewrite the description in their proprietary text message language.
