SQL On Insert Trigger to update image field is limited to 50 characters?

Hi. We are using Microsoft SQL Server 2000. The code below does work to update an image field in the Shipper table with the corresponding serial numbers, but when I tried a long list of serial numbers, I counted only 50 characters entered into the field.

What can I do to improve the trigger so all of the information can be entered?

Thanks.
CREATE   TRIGGER ABC_UPDATE_PACK_LIST_SN ON [dbo].[SHIPPER_LINE] 
FOR INSERT 
AS
 
                      DECLARE @ROWID		VARCHAR(15) 
	DECLARE @CUST_ORDER_ID	VARCHAR(10)
	DECLARE @CUST_ORDER_LINE	VARCHAR(2)
	DECLARE @APG_SERIAL_NUM	 VARCHAR(50)	
	DECLARE @LONG_DESC		VARCHAR(50)
	DECLARE @PACKLIST_ID		VARCHAR(10)
	DECLARE @PACKLIST_LINE	VARCHAR(4)
	
	
	SELECT @ROWID = I.ROWID, @CUST_ORDER_ID = I.CUST_ORDER_ID,
		@CUST_ORDER_LINE = I.CUST_ORDER_LINE_NO,
		@PACKLIST_ID = I.PACKLIST_ID, 
		@PACKLIST_LINE = I.LINE_NO
		FROM INSERTED I
 
	SELECT @ABC_SERIAL_NUM=ABCDE.dbo.ABC_SERIAL_NUMBERS.SERIAL_NUMBERS
	        FROM ABCDE.dbo.ABC_SERIAL_NUMBERS
		WHERE (@CUST_ORDER_ID = CUST_ORDER) AND (@CUST_ORDER_LINE = CUST_ORDER_LINE)
 
	IF @ABC_SERIAL_NUM IS NOT NULL
 
		BEGIN
		
		UPDATE SHIPPER_LINE SET LONG_DESCRIPTION = @ABC_SERIAL_NUM WHERE PACKLIST_ID = @PACKLIST_ID and LINE_NO = @PACKLIST_LINE
 
		END

I presume the problem is because of the variable in the code defined as VARCHAR(50) ?

apart from that, change the code like this:
CREATE   TRIGGER ABC_UPDATE_PACK_LIST_SN ON [dbo].[SHIPPER_LINE] 
FOR INSERT 
AS 
  UPDATE sl 
     SET LONG_DESCRIPTION = sn.SERIAL_NUMBERS
    FROM INSERTED i
    JOIN ABCDE.dbo.ABC_SERIAL_NUMBERS sn
      ON sn.CUST_ORDER = i.CUST_ORDER_ID
     AND sn.CUST_ORDER_LINE = i.CUST_ORDER_LINE_NO
    JOIN SHIPPER_LINE sl 
      ON sl.PACKLIST_ID = i.PACKLIST_ID
     AND sl.LINE_NO = i.LINE_NO
   WHERE sn.SERIAL_NUMBERS IS NOT NULL

Thanks. When I increased the field to VARCHAR(8000) I could see the rest of the text.
