Stata SE allows a macro to have a length <= 1,081,511. However string functions including length() and index() don't recognize lengths greater than 245.

Perhaps recognizing the full length of macro could be added to the wish list. Until that time, however, I suggest this limitation be added to the help limits and help strfun files.
