Change characterestic data type Length

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me, how i can change the caracterestic data type length. My characterestic got saved and activated. i can delete and recreate, but i would like to check whether there is any other way.

Unfortunately, a characteristic can be created with a maximum length of 18 characters. The only workaround would be to create an user-defined characteristic of length CHAR18, and then fill it with the first 18 positions of the source field by derivation.
