It has probably been blogged or posted about, but I must have missed it.
While recording a How Do I video for the Address Integration Pattern I noticed that you cannot declare an address array without declaring the length.
Here is why:
If I declare an address array without specifying the length I get this error:
Arithmetic operation resulted in an overflow.
And this is the code:
Since MAXSTRLEN returns 2147483647, this function blows up.
Here is proof:
The max value for integer (int32) is 2147483647. Adding 1, is not possible.
The MAXSTRLEN issue was mentioned first (?) in Kamil’s comment of Vjeko’s post: http://vjeko.com/blog/unlimited-text-length-in-nav-2013 (however without mentioning the exact error message).
Thanks for reminding me of this topic anyway 🙂
That’s how I understood you – you wondered if and where it might have been posted earlier, and here it is 🙂

Yes it’s easy to miss, in fact I just had the exact same error today. Don’t really understand why I didn’t get it before…
Thanks for this. So is this not a bug in NAV 2015 as this is the standard code? And i assume we just take out the +1 part? Thanks
Thank you very much
