Error description

  • Running an XML report in Report Studio 10.1.1 shows the length
    of a varchar column as double the length plus two compared to
    the column length in the Oracle 10g database.  So if the length
    is 10 in the database, the XML report output shows length of 22
    and if the length is 90 in the database, the XML report output
    shows 182.
