My requirement is I have an Emp table with 3 columns as shown below.I want to insert some test data.
CREATE TABLE dbo.Emp (
            EmployeeNumber                  Varchar(10)            NULL,
            LastName                        Varchar(50)            NULL,
            Hobby                              Varchar(max)      NULL
                                                )

I am inserting like this giving me an error.
INSERT INTO dbo.EmployeeHobby
      Values('101','Pam','Tom', SELECT REPLICATE('TAP',300))

Since the last coulmn is VARCHAR(MAX),i need to have some test data in the table.

Try dropping the values and using a select instead

INSERT INTO dbo.EmployeeHobby
      Select '101','Pam','Tom', REPLICATE('TAP',300)
