Do you really need ntext? It can really be a pain... If 4000 characters is enough for you in the field, then I suggest that you use nvarchar instead.

Another point. Your post sounds like the unique identifier is some kind of custom identifier and it actually has a meaning. If it is some kind of concatenation from data, I'd suggest that you would use real unique identifiers instead => keys that are unique but the data doesn't have a meaning, the only purpose is that it's unique.
