Hi @jhunyan,

Please replace varchar data type to text it will resolve your issue.

Hi @Nilesh_Hake,

Thank you for your reply.

I look at the database in phpmyadmin and unable to find the table ‘history_data’. I wonder where I can look for this.localhost _ 127.0.0.1 _ openemr _ phpMyAdmin 5.0.2.pdf (714.1 KB)

Please advise

@jhunyan

Some of the OpenEMR database tables are missing in your pdf(233 tables in openemr).

Seems the tables are not get completely imported.

Try to import the database again.

For any clarification refer the below link to export and import.
