Varchar Exceeds The Maximum Allowed For Any Data Type

Server: Msg 131, Level 15, State 3, Line 1
The size (12000) given to the type 'varchar' exceeds the maximum allowed for any data type (8000).

When the the length is specified in declaring a VARCHAR variable or column, the maximum length allowed is still 8000.  If the length is greater than 8000, you have to use the  MAX specifier as the length.  If a length greater than 8000 is specified, the following error will be encountered (assuming that the length specified is 12000) 

Server: Msg 131, Level 15, State 3, Line 1
The size (12000) given to the type 'varchar' exceeds the maximum allowed for any data type (8000). 

Error:   
Server: Msg 131, Level 15, State 3, Line 1 
The size () given to the type ‘varchar’ exceeds the maximum allowed for any data type (8000)

Fix / Solution:
Use VARCHAR(MAX) data type instead of VARCHAR.

NOTE: TEXT of SQL Server 2000 is replaced in SQL Server 2005 with VARCHAR(MAX).



SQL Server datatype. datatype issue. insertion type. datatype. varchar max. varchar. varchar datatype. Varchar Exceeds The Maximum Allowed For Any Data Type. max limit of varchar(max) in sql server 2005. max limit of varchar(max) in sql server 2012. max limit of varchar(max) in sql server 2008. Can I set VARCHAR size larger than 8k but less than MAX. data type error from SQL server. Why SQL Server throws Arithmetic overflow error. SQL problem with error Invalid data type. Integration Services Data Types. Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type. Data type error in SSIS.
