Fewer than 984951984945621984651321984621216549546320306549463203068.

This MySQL link might be more useful. I suspect it varies from program to program.

All database tables can have a maximum of 100 columns. Actually thats not true, but if you're ever in a situation where you have more than 100 columns you screwed up.
