Subject:Cost of using over dimensioned columns
View as plain text  
Hi list,

I'm wondering what the "cost" (if any) is by using eg. mediumtext  
over  text, or largetext over mediumtext. Is there a non-negligible  
reason to not just just  largetext?

And how about varchars, what's the "cost" of using varchar(1000)   
rather than varchar(20)?

My intuition tells me that I should keep things as tight as possible,   
but I may be narrow minded and need a sanity check.
