2486930 - 4000 character limitation in Report Table / Detailed Reporting


While running a Table Report for Performance or Objective Management the data gets cut off and the full data cannot be reported on.


  • SAP Successfactors HXM Suite
  • Report Table 
  • Report Canvas on Detailed Reporting query

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Report Center
  2. Run the Table Report and see the field.
  3. The field showing truncated data as compared to UI.


  • It is a known limitation that report table and report canvas on detailed reporting only support reporting on ~4,000 characters due to DB limitations.
  • This is by design, Table report pulls the data from FEEDBACK table which has the limitation of 4000 character and PM form pulls the data from form content blob, hence the difference in form and the report tools.


This is an expected behavior of the tool. If you judge this functionality is important you case raise an enhancement request. See KBA 2090228.
