Go to Tools, Options, Results and see what you have for max column width.

QA will display only about the first 1000 or so characters of a field in the result pane.  The data is still there, it just truncates it in the display.  The SQL field limit is 8092.

If you go to the Text Mode option, it will display 8000 characters
