The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

When using Syntax 1 of the FORWARD TO statement via EXECUTE IMMEDIATE to send a big fat SQL statement to a remote database, is there a formula for calculating the maximum size of the SQL statement that can be sent?

In this old question-and-answer Nick Elson seems to indicate that it is the source database page size less 88 bytes.

Interesting limit - may this be connected to the data limit one can pass to other connections via the MESSAGE statement?

It' Saturday - time to guess - Monday may bring an answer:)

BTW: Are you sure this question should not be tagged with neither "debugging" nor "performance"?
