Although the stored proc will accept a huge chunk of text (up to 2GB), you can be more restrictive if you don't need to pass a very long value. It makes sense to restrict it if INVENTBATCHID is only intended to be a short string.

adLongVarWChar is the closest matching datatype
but you could use
adVarWChar for unicode text <4000 chars
