Hi Guilherme,


Have a look at this faq

All tge based data is stored in a table which is managed by the add-on.  The number in the CF is the number of rows in the grid for that particular issue.


Let me know if this helps,




Hi @Francis Martens (iDalko), I know the table that contains field data. But when I have a field with = textarea, it doesn't save text itself in the column (Check "comments2") it's a key from another table. This table is what I want.

Thank you

Textarea columns are clobs allowing to store huge comments.  This clobs are implemented differently depending on the database system.

What database are you using ?

Hi @Francis Martens (iDalko), I'm using PostgreSQL smile

(sorry that I didn't followup earlier - JIRA is much easier to track issues than answers)

Can you check following stackoverflow document

Locate the last answer ...


select convert_from(loread(lo_open(comments2::int, x'40000'::int), x'40000'::int),  'UTF8') from <yourtablename>;


Not sure if this will work - but can you give it a try ?


Thanks for your support.
