Adjusting Column Lengths

Hi, I'm importing a dataset which is defaulting to the maximum column length. I've amended these in the schema however when I create a prepare recipe it does not carry forward, is there any easy way to do this?

Hi Tracy,

Since the Prepare recipe is creating a new dataset it will default back to the max value for that database. You will need to change this in the output dataset schema.

We are looking at ways to improve this as mentioned in this thread:
