I have an asp.net form (c# code behind). The form allows users to insert and edit records. Once in a while a user will put in more data into a field than it can handle. This cause the truncated data error. What I would like to do is accept as much as possible from the field and insert that, truncating the rest of the data. Is there a way to do this? Either from the stored procedure or the c# code?

In the stored procedure, before where you update your tables, add:

SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF

No more truncation error messages.
