what's the import failing with?

is the text > 8060 bytes (4030 characters)    (is it text or Ntext varchar or Nvarchar?)

will the "text" contain control characters CR LF x'00' etc..

Are you sure it is not importing correctly?  Or is it just not displaying all the data in Enterprise Manager?  Enterprise Manager cannot display more than 1K data.

The import is failing at the row which has more than 1024 characters, the data type of the cell is varchar(5000). I did some cells manually but i have many rows to do . Is there a better way to do?
