"adLongVarchar" indicates a long string value (Parameter object only).

"adBSTR" indicates a null-terminated character string (Unicode)(DBTYPE_BSTR).

so, which one is right?
"adLongVarchar " or "adBSTR"?

Here is the code I am testing the text data type with:
Dim objCommand2, strConnect
   strConnect = "DSN=SALESSQL;initial catalog=Dole;UID=sa;PWD="
 
  Set objCommand2= Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
  objCommand2.ActiveConnection = strConnect
  objCommand2.CommandText = "aaatest"
  objCommand2.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
 
  Set objParameter = objCommand2.CreateParameter("@Col1",adChar,adParamInput,10,Request.Form("txtChar"))
  objCommand2.Parameters.Append objParameter
 
  Set objParameter = objCommand2.CreateParameter("@Col2",adLongVarChar,adParamInput,1100,Request.Form("txtText"))
  objCommand2.Parameters.Append objParameter
 
  objCommand2.Execute
 Response.Write Len(Request.Form("txtText"))
The length of the string I was trying to insert into the table turned out to be 1100 characters long.  The insert fails to go into the text field. of SQL Server 7.0 table.

Jpresser,
the size of a parameter is dependant on the underlying datatype not the data you are passing to it.  I have have successfully used the 'advarchar' datatype with size 2147483647 as stated above.

I tried your example, it did not work with the text type in sql server.  It works fine if I use a varchar as the data type.

When I try to insert 900 or more characters into the text type, nothing gets inserted into the field.

The example I left calls a simple stored procedure that just does an insert.  For some reason it fails to work when the character string get to the 900 or so characters. It works however, if the data type is varchar, and fails if it is text.

It works fine for me with adVarchar and much more than 900 characters for a TEXT column in SQL Server

Jpresser,

Have a text datatype for your text-field in the table.
But in your stored procedure, declare it as varchar(1100), like this

create procedure aaatest
 ...
 @Col2 varchar(1100)
 ...

BTW, I myself haven't try to have a parameter with text type but it's still intriguing to know what exactly the type for text parameter (not using varchar  parameter)

The data in the text field could not be seen after it reached a certain length. It was, however, always there.

Thanks
