By | September 20, 2014

Sage CRM allows System Administrators to create different types of fields as per the requirement e.g. Text. Selection, Search selected Advance etc. We can put SQL clauses on SSA fields for restricting the information. However there is the limit on number of characters to be written in Search SQL text.

By default on Search Select Advanced field user can enter 60 characters maximum in “Search SQL” textbox
Now what if you want to add longer condition? Here is how you can increase this limit.
1. Login into SageCRM.
