The following rules apply to a MVC specification that specifies a comma-separated list of constant values:

  • The maximum number of distinct constant values in the list is 255 plus NULL.
  • Values can appear in any order.
  • NULL can appear at any point in the multi-valued constant list.
  • The multi-value list cannot contain duplicate values. Note that case variants are not considered duplicate values if UPPERCASE is not specified.
  • NULL cannot appear in the list if the column is declared NOT NULL.
