I'm trying to update date in the rows when I open a table
and I keep getting this message for some of the rows:

No row was updated.

The data in row 2344 was not committed.
Error message: String or binary data would be truncated.
Correct errors or press Esc.
The statement has been terminated.

Anyway I can stop this from happening? thanks
