    Unanswered: Large string fields

    Hello all,

    I have to upload about 800KB of string data into a field (of type VARCHAR).

    This might need to be done several times per day.

    The other alternative is to instead just create txt files on the same server as the database, and have the db fields contain the filenames of those txt files instead of the actual contents of the file.

    Which approach do you guys see as more fitting?

    Depends on what you are going to do with the data in question. Is it displayed many times per minute?
