A varchar(256) attribute is defined on a table. Per query requirement's this attribute is placed into spool. Lets assume that all the values
for this attribute are between 30 and 60 bytes in length. Does spool carry the various values at their actual length (approx 30 to 60 bytes)? Or
does the spool carry the values at an expanded length of 256 bytes?
