    Hi,

    Write Database has a an advanced parameter to override the default varchar length, have you tried to set it to 255?

    Hi!

    What kind of database server are you using, and how did you configure Write Database?

    Your database seems to suggest that the "tinytext" type is limited to 255 characters. This is obviously bad.

    A good workaround would be pre-creating the table with the correct data type (varchar(1024), text, ... depending on your database) and selecting "append" as the "overwrite mode" in the Write Database operator. 

    With the default settings RapidMiner tries to create the target table if it's not yet there, and change the data types in it if its there. This is where you get the error.

    The error message you're encountering suggests that you're trying to insert data into a database column with a varchar data type, but the length of the data exceeds the maximum length allowed for the column, which is 255 characters for a column of SQL type "tinytext". To resolve this issue, you have a few options:

    1. Truncate the data: You can truncate the data so that it fits within the 255 character limit. You can do this by using the "Substring" operator in RapidMiner to extract only the first 255 characters of the data.

    2. Increase the size of the column: If you don't want to truncate the data, you can increase the size of the column in the database so that it can accommodate the full length of the data. You can do this by altering the data type of the column to a larger varchar type such as "text" or "mediumtext".

    3. Store the data in another column: If you don't want to truncate the data or increase the size of the column, you can store the data in another column in the database. You can do this by using the "Append" operator in RapidMiner to add another column to the data and store the full length of the data in that column.

    Note: The specific steps to implement these options will depend on your database management system and the configuration of your database. It's best to consult the documentation of your database management system for more information on how to perform these operations.
