To find the length of a field
select Len(field) from table
the 4 MB limit is more likely coming from ADO than from mssql, qhich can store up to 2 GB in one of these fields

Oh, I see, you want to know the length of the data, not the field size...
select datalength(field) from table
where PK = Expression

Fan(blooming)tastic! I could not find that datalength documented anywhere. Now I know the name of the function I can read up on it in SQL Server Books Online.
Thank you very very very very very very very much. This is going to save me a lot of headache in dealing with our SQL CDBA's.Cheers,
