    Default Change field length

    I am trying to change the length of a text field from 20 to 16.
    I can't find any place to change it.
    Using ArcMAP 10.0

    Default Re: Change field length

    What type of data source are you using? What service pack level of 10.0?

    I'm not aware of any database that will let you dynamically shrink the size of a
    VARCHAR column. I usually go back to my data creation scripts and change the
    SQL in the CREATE TABLE statement.
