Getting the following

Internal error. Buffer provided to read column value is too small. Run DBCC CHECKDB to check for any corruption.

When updating a table between 2 servers/databases.

Can't find a solution.

Any ideas?

Did you run "DBCC CHECKDB"?  What were the results?

Hmm, interesting.

I suggest flushing the procedure/statement cache for that db, since there may be an obsolete object definition being used somewhere.

You'll need to get the database_id for that db:

DBCC FLUSHPROCINDB(<database_id>);


Also, I'd refresh all views in the db -- it won't hurt, and it might, with some luck, help:

EXEC sp_refreshview 'viewname'
