Error: Database lookup generated more than 65,000 bytes of results

I encountered this error message "ERROR: The specified database lookup generated more than 65,000 bytes of results, which is too large for Notes to handle in this context" in one of my databases that lookups by using @DBColumn to another database. What does this mean and how can we know that the database lookup has generated more than 65,000 bytes of result? How can I solve this problem?
The issue arises when the @DBColum returns more than about 42,000 bytes of information. See the knowldegbase article "@DbLookup and @DbColumn questions and answers". Items #4 and #5 are relevant. What you need to do is make the @Dbcolumn call more specific so less information is returned.
