[resolved] talend String type to MySQL TEXT datatype conversion ?!

Seems really rudimentary, but I'm not able to find the solution. Implicit conversion is not working, explicit with tConvertType also not. So how can you do it?
I just want a field declared in job as String to store into a database with tMySQLOutput, not as a varchar, but as a TEXT.

Sorry everyone. I was a victim of a small gui bug. String to text conversion is allowed in schema definition window. But, when typing field length, if this column is too narrow to show a complete number (e.g. 65535) it is being reset back to zero.
