Report Builder is limiting lenght of DNG text attribute

Henryk Tomczyk (1336) | asked May 11 '20, 11:59 a.m.
Due to unknown reason Report Builder is limiting the DNG attribute text in Report Builder, it is not able to display complete text. I am aware of the limit for content, but this is quite short text.

Screen attached, DNG attribute is text type.

Would be great to have a suggestion on how I can fix that.

One possibility to overcome this limitation is by customizing the DCC ETL as described in:
