i'm displaying strings retrieved from a database in an outputText within a datatable...but the string is being truncated to 8 characters. How can i prevent the string from being truncated?

I tried adjusting the length of the outputText using stylesheets, but the strings still get truncated..

That sounds awfully odd. Never had an issue as that. Have you done some debug output to make sure the strings aren't being trucated at the dbase level?

yes i'm sure im not doing any truncation in the db level... i tried displaying a string from the same db in an outputText outside of the datatable, and the string is not truncated.. very weird.. it's only truncated when i put it in this datatable.. anywat i'll try the same code on a different PC and see what happens
