How to increase the maximum record length

Hi,

I need to create a file of record length more than 300 characters.
But in my unix box, i am able to create a file only with a maximum of 256 characters per record.

Is there anyway i can create a file with more than 300 characters in this case?
Or How to increase the maximum record length?

Any help is appreciated... Please let me know if you need any further details.

Unix version is use:
SunOS 5.10

What are you using to create this file? What counts as a "record"?
