Data Deployment Error: Exceeded max length for one record: 1542171. Max length for one record should be less than or equal to 400000

When doing a data deployment, Salesforce may return the following error:

“Exceeded max length for one record: 1542171. Max length for one record should be less than or equal to 400000”
 
This error occurs when a deployment record exceeds Salesforce’s character limit of 400000 characters.
 
To fix this issue, you need to either reduce the length of the text areas and rich text fields included in the record or limit the number of fields you are deploying.


How did we do?
