Known limitations and workarounds

 

Please take into account our advice and known limitations.


If you try to get the column <Description> from the Products table from Magento you will get an error saying that the column exceeds the max length limit. The CData provider has a limit (2000 chars) for the set text from Magento. You can try to set the property DefaultColumnSize to a higher value in your connection string like this:
