We're still using SQL 2000 (transitioning to 2005 soon).
In Enterprise Manager I used to see the phrase <long text> when a field contained a great amount of text. I know this is a function of Enterprise Manager and we built a form so we could see and edit that text.
However now I'm just seeing a blank field when the amount of text exceeds EM's limits. When we put that field into a web page all the text displays fine so we know the text is being stored. However it's a bit scary not seeing anything in the field now.
Would this be something controlled by the SQL Server Administrator (a DBA)?
