DESCRIPTION

Any large amount of text stored in a field can be stored in a Text value. This is stored using the "Text" primitive, which should be able to store large amounts of text data.

The actual maximum length will depend upon the database, but is usually measured in Megabytes, which should be sufficient for nearly anything.
