OpenCart database structure
Product Descriptions are stored in the `product_description` table, in the `description` column of your OpenCart database. This is a text field, which imposes no limit on the size of the description field. There is no validation rule on the length of the description field. Similarly, our import tools do not apply any limitations on the length of the description field that you import.
The most common reason for descriptions (or any other field) to be cut off is because there are non-UTF8 characters in that field. Typically PHP will cut off the description from the non-UTF8 character onward, so it is easy to figure out which character is causing the problem in each of your descriptions.
If you have many descriptions that have been cut off during import, the best solution is to convert your whole file to UTF8 before import. You can use our instructions to convert your file to UTF8.
