SESSION:PARAMETER Entry Max Length?

This question is answered

I'm looking to run progress from the command line, passing in parameters that will be captured by SESSION:PARAMETER.  Do anyone know if there are any length limitations on data passed in as parameterized arguments?

  • The limit will be what the OS allows from the command line up to the max size of a character value in the ABL.

  • Under UNIX, many people will put values in environmental varibles, then use os-getenv() to read the value.  

    Others go further and use configuration files - both can be found used here:
