Max Character For String Parameter in SQL

I have this problem. I have designed a table to store long message or remark, where these info are more than 1000 characters. When I use store procedures to assign these info into a parameter/variable (where I declared it as @str varchar(1000)), it's only return first 250 characters of remark or message? The rest of the characters are all truncated. WHy? Pls help me. Thanks in advance.

Are you looking at this through query analyzer?  If you look under the options in query analyzer in the results tab you will see a maximum numbers of charcters per column option that you can change to bring back more characters.

To see if you are really storing more than 250 characters;

select max(datalength(remark)) from mytable

Agree with curtis591

It should be settings in QA. You can use more than 1000 as a variable
