Hi,

One of my code is like this for one of the parameters for a stored procedure

SqlCom.Parameters.Add("@string", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 8000).Value = (strString.TrimEnd(',').TrimEnd(' '));

Is there a way to set max in asp.net?

SqlCom.Parameters.Add("@string", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, max).Value = (strString.TrimEnd(',').TrimEnd(' '));

Just don't include the length parameter. It is not required.

In addition to the above comment.

SqlCom.Parameters.Add("@string", System.Data.SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = (strString.TrimEnd(',').TrimEnd(' '));

VarChar, Length - Range between 1 and 8,000 characters. In this case use same length given in the database.

Use VarChar without lenth when the database column is Varchar(max). Max can store upto 2GB in SQL Server.

Complete side note: The Parameters.Add() function is deprecated. The preferred method now is Parameters.AddWithValue() function which doesn't even have an overload that accepts a size parameter.

I thinks we can provide size - 16 is what we are providing below.

Public Sub AddSqlParameter(command As SqlCommand)
  Dim param As SqlParameter = New SqlParameter( _
      "@Description", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 16)
  param.Value = "Beverages"
  command.Parameters.Add(param)
End Sub
