How long is DS-160 valid from the day it is submitted and approved?

Asked over 2 years ago - Houston, TX

If I submitted DS-160 and was approved. How long is the validity before it become invalid?
For example, if I plan to go for visa stamping on April and submitted DS-160 now. Later on, due to work reason, my trip is delayed. How long is the approved DS-160 going to be valid before it expired?

How long does it takes DS-160 to be approved?
