Sorting limits

The following table lists the limits for sorting data (unless otherwise specified).
Table 34. Sorting limits
1 to 16 columns or expressions.
Typically, 1 to 197 bytes (that is, approximately 200 bytes minus some overhead per column and expression). The size limit depends on the number of columns and expressions you are sorting. Each column and expression uses up some number of available bytes.
