datawindow character length using ASA 16

PB 12.5.1 Build 4015, Win7 professional

When I create a dw using an ASA 12 db (or lower version), the character column lengths in the datawindow match the character length in the database. 

If I create the exact same datawindow using an ASA 16 database, the character columns in the datawindow are 3 times the size of the character lengths in the database.

Q: Are you using a LOCAL or Networked version of SA16?

BTW: My test SA16 DB is using the "Windows-1252" character set.

PS: Just created a UTF-8 DB and then recreated a table like in the Demo PB DB. No issues building a DWO from an SA16 DB encoded in UTF-8 ...
