Hello
1) is there a limit in the number that can be inserted in a ms sql table?
How do I know, if there is a limit?
Because there is a scenario where I have 170000 entries in a table, I would like what are the factors that decides the limit?
2) if there is a limit, what happens when you add an additional entry, does this raise any windows error on windows event/app/system logs ?

I suggest you check out:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143432.aspx

What do you mean by "number that can be inserted"?  Maximum number of rows, or the max size of the actual 'number' or something else?

If I read your question right, you are asking about the number of rows.  From the link I provided:

Rows per table  Limited by available storage

depends on the space available on the disk.
Now, if you want to insert such a large volume of data, i suggest use the BULK INSERT /bcp statements (also change the mode to 'bulk logged' otherwise each insert statement will make the log files to grow

As already posted:  Rows per table Limited by available storage

Using the link I posted, select 'Other Versions', select 2005.
