I have the grid I want to feel that grid from the sql server 2000. I want to add a 200 columns with a 8000 characters in a adodb recordset. I have done this by using the recordset but there is error of recordset to fetch data for every column with 8000 characters. I what a solution how to fetch a data from sql server 2000 with a column of varchar (8000) to the recordset

Code for this is

Set recList = New ADODB.Recordset
    ' execute any SQL build statements
    If strSql3 & "" <> "" Then
        Dim lngResults As Long
        Call CmdExecuteSqlAsync(conn, Replace(strSql3, "___temp_table___", strTempTable), cmdCancel, _
            lblStatus, lngResults)
    End If
    recList.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    recList.CursorType = adOpenStatic
    recList.LockType = adLockBatchOptimistic

    recList.Properties("Initial Fetch Size") = 1
    recList.Properties("Background Fetch Size") = 1
    blnFetching = True
    strSQL = Replace(strSQL, "___temp_table___", strTempTable)
    recList.Open strSQL, conn, adOpenStatic, adLockBatchOptimistic, adAsyncFetch + adAsyncExecute
    lblStatus = Format(Now - dtmStart, "hh:mm:ss") & " elapsed, 0 record(s)"
    Do While blnFetching = True And cmdSearch.Enabled = False And recList.State > 1
        lblStatus = Format(Now - dtmStart, "hh:mm:ss") & Mid(lblStatus, InStr(lblStatus, " elapsed, "))
        Sleep 200

//reclist is the object of adodb recordset

show your code!

SQL Server 2000 has a row size limit of 8060 bytes. So you cannot insert 200x8000 characters.

It also happen same to sql server 2008
if i use the varchar(8000) as a datatype for the table column,
If I use nvarchar(max) as datatype then it working fine in sql server 2005 and 2008 but i wnat solution for sql server 2000

Max is a key word that is introduced with sql2005 for sql2000 you have to set the size to 8000
have a read of this article

SQL 2000 row sizes[^]

Even though you can use columns size upto 8000 characters in SQL 2000 you cant exceed 8k per row in size.
