Data Types - String

Good Morning.

There appears to be two types of string, variable and fixed length. How do we define between the two, as defining a dimension ' As String' appears to give me fixed length and limit me to 65,000 characters.

Also, I would like to say thanks again for a great course and if a certificate could possible be sent out to me in due course it would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Hope this helps,
