Data prefixed by ' > '

Hi

I have a databricks table that has a column with a string datatype

When loading data, certain rows are prefixed by ' > '

Does anybody know what would cause this?

It seems to be when the string is above a certain number of characters (around 200)

Thanks

Pretty sure it is just some automated shortener when a column contains multiline strings, to show you there are extra new line characters in the column.

It looks like default string data length exceeded and due to that its showing this kind of symbol and extra new line in the column.
