Here's the issue. I have a table which has 300 columns in it, each up to 255 bytes (there IS a business justification for this). When I try it create it using
VARCHAR(255), I go past the limit for the maximum number of bytes. So I create is using 300
TEXT fields. When I then try and insert data, I get the error:
Row size too large (> 8126). Changing some columns to TEXT or BLOB or using ROW_FORMAT=DYNAMIC or ROW_FORMAT=COMPRESSED may help. In current row format, BLOB prefix of 768 bytes is stored inline.
After reading up on this, I tried to change the table to use Barracuda format by specifying
ROW_FORMAT=COMPRESSED. The issue now seems to be that when I try and create the table using that format, I get the same error.
CREATE TABLE T_ObjLarge__c (Id VARCHAR(18), Name VARCHAR(80), ObjLarge_Field_1__c TEXT, ObjLarge_Field_2__c TEXT, ... ObjLarge_Field_300__c TEXT ) ROW_FORMAT=COMPRESSED ;
The error I get is:
Row size too large (> 8126). Changing some columns to TEXT or BLOB may help. In current row format, BLOB prefix of 0 bytes is stored inline.
