I have an External Content Type mapped to SQL Server External Data. There is a column with more than 350 Characters. So, I made that column with Datatype of NVarchar with 350 size. I have created a new SharePoint list by using this External Content type. But in the SharePoint the list is showing only single line instead of Multiple lines. How do I fix this issue? I will need to show all 350 Characters in SharePoint.
