How many characters are allowed in a table object cell and what is the maximum number of characters that can be seen in a cell's Tooltip. (balloon that opens to show more data from the cell when cursor is left on top of the cell)Environment:
- Qlik Sense September 2018 SR1
Tooltip's number of characters can be between approximately 252 and 2048 characters depending on the product version and what browser is used when viewing the app. Table object cell has a very high limit (unknown at the time of writing this article) and when importing data from Excel for example, the limitation comes from the Excel file itself which is 32943 characters for Microsoft Excel 2016. One caveat to this limitation is that likely not all of the characters will be displayed in the table cell. The number of characters displayed will depend on how wide the column displayed is made and the displayable view (definition). To view all the characters it will likely be necessary to export the data to an Excel file.
This character limitation does not apply to other Qlik Sense native objects which may have higher or lower number of characters limit.
The maximum number of characters for the cells or Tooltip is not configurable.
