String or binary data would be truncated.
The statement has been terminated.

It means the value want to insert is larger than the max limitation of the field.
so you need to check the fields of customerTbl .

I think your data is larger than the allowed size set for your column by definition.

if you want to turn off the exception
you may add:

set ANSI_WARNINGS OFF
GO
....

after scripts finished
....
set ANSI_WARNINGS ON
GO

you may execute without warning, but you may lose some data as it will be truncated if beyond the size limit.

Increase the datatype length of the column which is causing this error. Then only the data you are trying to insert into the table will get inserted successfully. If you suppress the error warning messages, you will lose those data that you are inserting.

So better to first check and find which column have less datatype length than the size of the data you are inserting. Then increase its datatype length. That's all.
