Great, thanks Seth. That covers LONG to CLOB, so I think we can feel
confident about converting those. Relatedly, has anyone switched LONG
RAW to BLOB?
On the particular problem we are having, we were just now able to
convert LONG RAW to BLOB on METAOBJ_FORM_DEF.SCHEMADATA in our test
environment and solves the problem reported in SAK-12914, but we haven't
had a chance yet to verify that other operations on that table continue
to work as expected.
Thanks for everyone's help so far.
