Is there a maximum size for data-block?

When using the "START TRANSID(xxxx) FROM(data-block)" and "RETRIEVE INTO(data-block)", is there a maximum size or other restrictions for the data-block (i.e. similar to the 32k size limit when passing data via commarea)?
As you can see from the APR, this is limited to 32k. Please read the CICS documentation before using this forum for equivalent queries.
