I am getting error: [FILL-IN <fieldname> will not fit in FRAME cc in Program. (4028)]

I am new to progress and was just tossed into a legacy program that they wanted me to fix. I learned Java in school so forgive me if i use the wrong names for progress elements.

The program is relatively simple. It spits out a report of unauthorized users that made any transactions on a QAD (our MRP system) screen. It uses an array of usersnames to determine the authorized users, and therefore anyone that is not in the list gets included in the report.

The array is about 150 characters long, and when i change the original code from:
Code:
define variable userlst1  as character format "x(70)" init
to
Code:
define variable userlst1  as character format "x(150)" init
i get the aforementioned error. I know it has to do with the array length being to large, but i am not sure how to overcome this.
