  • Probably on Technet somewhere.  Are you referring to the Field Text in 2007 or 2010, or the Multiline Field text in 2010?

    What are you trying to accomplish with a custom text field exceeding 256 characters?  There may be a better method.

  • In the Project Server 2010 Administrator's guide there is a reference for setting a Code Mask Length on a Text type Lookup Table.

    The Administrator's guide specifies Length values between 1 and 255 for Lookup Table Code Mask values.  I haven't seen anything specifically documented for Enterpise Custom Fields.
