Default long text field


I have a textbox field that take 2000 characters from user..Then I used a store procedure to save that user input into database through an insert statement, but for some reason it just never store the whole string of 2000 characters but only store some of it (like 100 or something) .. Seems like a data type problem…(I am using SQL server 2000)

This is what I have defined:


In storeprocedure:

@iidea2 varchar(2000)

Table Design

Idea2 varchar 2000

Aspx page

cmd.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@iidea2", SqlDbType.VarChar)).Value = Idea2

Hi there,

Have you tried creating a SqlParameter explicitly and setting its Size property?
