How and where would you you increase the number of characters in the search name field in Global Address Book? I'd assume it would be at the AOT.
The reason we need to know, is the field is limited to 20 characters. We are planning to increase that to about 30 as it's going to be used as the street address and number search; it's much faster for our end users and we need just a few more characters.
Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreacited.
The field you refer to is called NameAlias on the DirPartyTable. It is based on the extended data type NameAlias, which has StringSize 20 as you expected. If you change that extended data type, it should expand the field accordingly after a database sync.
