String or binary data would be truncated

Hello Everyone I get the following error message:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e57'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]String or binary data would be truncated.

/OPICForms/115/save_sv.asp, line 163

Is this caused by my code or by the datatyeps in my database?
For instance, if I hava a string it's too long to fit in the database?
if it's caused by my code, please let me know and I'll include the code, it's just that this is 14 page application and the error seems to come from the UPDATE statmetn, which doesn't tell me anything:

      
      if sUpdate<> "" then

       sUpdate = "UPDATE " & sTable & " SET " & sUpdate & " [Part" & iFormPart & "Complete]=" & Request.Form("_complete") & ", [Part" & iFormPart & "Updated_ts]='" & now() & "' WHERE FK_ApplicationID=" & iApplicationID
      
      
      else
             sUpdate = "UPDATE " & sTable & " SET [Part" & iFormPart & "Complete]=" & Request.Form("_complete") & ", [Part" & iFormPart & "Updated_ts]='" & now() & "' WHERE FK_ApplicationID=" & iApplicationID
      end if

      objConn.execute(sUpdate)

end if


Any ideas?

Here is the UPDATE if I do response.write:

UPDATE tableName SET [chkFI]='1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [Technical1]=NULL, [Technical2]=NULL, [TrainingManagement]='0', [TrainingProfessional]='0', [TrainingLabor]='0', [EmployPolicy]=0, [Years]='0', [Managerial1]=NULL, [UnskilledLabor1]=NULL, [Managerial2]=NULL, [UnskilledLabor2]=NULL, [Partnerships]=0, [WomenBenefits]=0, [BenefitPoor]=0, [CompanyBenefits]=0, [DescribePartnerships1]=NULL, [DescribePartnerships2]=NULL, [DescribePartnerships3]=NULL, [DescribePartnerships4]=NULL, [chkbenefits]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [chkBenefitPoor]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [chkCompanyBenefits]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [chkEmployPolicy]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [chkWomenBenefits]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [chkPartnerships]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0', [Part09Complete]=0, [Part09Updated_ts]='11/16/2007 11:43:37 AM' WHERE FK_ApplicationID=995


It seems to have strange data like chkEmployPolicy = 0, is it because with several answers it sets up a string like this [chkCompanyBenefits]='0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0',

How do I fix somethign like this?

How can somethign like this happen, it's coming from the checkbox question, but why? why have the name equal to 0 rather than just 0

Most of the time when I get this error, I am trying to put too much data into a field in my database that won't hold that much data.

A solution that I use is I always trim my fields by using the mid function to only accept the maximum number of character allowed in my field in SQL Server.

So if you had a field in your table that only allowed 30 characters, just use the mid(myfield,1,30) to make sure you are only allowing the correct number of bytes.

Also, create maximum sizes on your form input fields so you won't all the user to exceed the entry there either.

If you are using chexkboxes you need to test the results by a javascript like this to see what was selected in your checkboxes:

for (counter=0;counter<job_form.chkjob.length;counter++)
 {
   if (job_form.chkjob[counter].checked)
      {
       chkbox_choices = chkbox_choices + 1;
      }
}

It looks like you are bringing in all of your values for the form checkbox instead of the one you actually want, that is why you have so many numbers in your string.

but multiple checkboxes are checked, therefore there shoudl be mulitple values.. .no?

On your processing form side, before you update, cycle through to see what was checked:

<%
for i = 1 to request.form("chkjob").count
     jobid = request.form("chkjob")(i)
next
%>

the field jobid will give you a specific value in the "array" of potential values for my checkboxes in the "chkjob" form field.
