This error message indicates that you have variable length columns in your table (such as nvarchar or varbinary) and that the total maximum length of all the columns adds up to more than 8060 bytes. You can still insert rows into the table provided that the total length of the data in each row does not exceed 8060 bytes. However, if the data does exceed 8060 bytes, the insertion fails with the following error message:

Server: Msg 511, Level 16, State 1, Line 5
Cannot create a row of size <rowlength> which is greater than the allowable maximum of 8060.
The statement has been terminated.

Does your eventinfo varchar(8000) needs to have 8000 characters. Recuce it to 7250 to avoid that error

Otherwise if you need to have 8000 bytes or more, then change the datatype to text from varchar(8000).
This will definitely help you out.

I am providing you two choices to resolve your issue:

1. Convert your varchar(8000) to varchar(7250)
OR
2. Convert your varchar(8000) to text datatype

rrjegan:

2. Convert your varchar(8000) to text datatype

the TEXT datatype will be depricated and you should refer to using the appropriate (n)varchar(max) field.
