I inserted the text without any problems. When I tried to view it with a SELECT statement, only some of the text was returned.
The SET TEXTSIZE statement didn`t help much either.

To enter text data, the column must first be initialized. Initialization causes a 2K data page to be allocated.
Initialize the text column by providing non-null data with an INSERT statement or any value (including a NULL) with an UPDATE statement. Then use the READTEXT statement to read text data, the WRITETEXT statement to replace text data, and the UPDATETEXT statement to modify text or image data.
