    What type to use for text comments of unknown length?

    Ricardo Lavezzi

      I want to store comments on a table. I don't know how long those comments will be, but if I use the varchar type, I need to specify a length.

       

       

      Searching on Internet, I found advice to use the text type, which apparently allows for unlimited (or non specified) text sizes.

       

      But SQL developer does not offer that data type. Should I use BLOB?

       

      I'm forced to use APEX to make an user interface (frontend?), so the data type should be compatible with APEX.

       

      I welcome any advice on it.
