Short background: Before we moved to salesforce we had a lot of data in a description box (tags related to that contact). We used these tags to pull out lists and run reports. This data, when moving to Salesforce, now exists in a custom text box.
Current problem: When I now run a report in Salesforce and search for the tags in the text box, only a selection of all contacts with those tags started showing up. I did multiple reports and set-ups trying to figure out the problem and I believe it might be caused due to the following: a word count limit, for the report to search through the text box.
I've done a few tests and all contacts with the relevant tags listed within a 235 character count show up. All contacts with the relevant tags listed after 235 character count disappears/wont show on my reports.
Questions 1: Can we remove or change the character count limit for the report search?
Question 2: Does reporting have any other such limits?
edit; referring to character count with spaces, instead of word count.
