Error Message :
U00000003 TRUNCATED

The :READ function only accepts 1024 characters for the drop down mask.

If a variable in a :READ statement contains a larger number of characters, the drop down opens as a yellow input mask.

Only when executing the statement using the debug options is an error displayed:

Cause:

Root Cause: The maximum lengths of input parameters for :READ function were not defined correctly. The Input Check parameter for the :READ function is limited to a maximum of 1024 characters. If this parameter is defined as an array of allowed values, the length of every value is limited to a maximum of 127 characters. The Default Value parameter is also limited to a maximum of 127 characters.
Resolution:
Update to a fix version listed below or a newer version if available where the limitation has been defined.
