I'm getting this error when creating my table:
The total row size, 2089, for table 'JobPosting' exceeds the maximum number of bytes per row, 1962.

How do I increase the maximum number of bytes per row ???????????

A single row of data in a table is limited to 1962 characters. This limits the size of the fixed-length data when creating a table. You can't increase it, I suppose.

The row-size limit is still enforced; however, you can have any combination of field lengths of actual data, as long as the sum is not more than 1962 characters. For example, with 12 fields of varchar 255, if every field only has 100 characters of actual data, for a total of 1200 characters, this is still under the 1962-character limit and should be allowed.
