I have field that has data in it.  When I attempt to update either using sql languageor by the enterprise manager I get the error "String or binary data would be truncated.".

I have tried to delete all the data in the field without success.  I cannot modify this field in any way.  I have also increased the column size without success.  I can do nothing with this.  

Any ideas?
