I have a Flex Application that calls a CFC with a SQL Insert Statement that continuously returns a SQL Server Error of : The data types varchar and text are incompatible in the equal to operator."

The SQL statement I am getting an error with is attached.

I oddly enough am having no trouble with my update statement.  

I am new to using SQL Server so I am sure it is just some rookie mistake. Thanks in advance.

Jere

insert into dbo.SiteTypes(SiteType)
				values (
					'test' 
				)

Open in new window

The current datatype of the field SiteType was varchar(50)  I changed it to varchar(MAX) and now I still get the same error, it just now says varchar(max) instead.
ERROR:
The data types varchar(max) and text are incompatible in the equal to operator.

it's quite impossible for the SQL statement
insert into dbo.SiteTypes(SiteType) values ('test')
on it's own to generate an error of type
"The data types varchar and text are incompatible in the equal to operator."
something else is happening, maybe you can trace the sql server?

SELECT table_name, column_name FROM information_schema.columns
where data_type = 'text'
