In sql server 2012, I want to allow a user to enter data into large columns that are used for different types of comments.
The largest varchar field that I am allowed to use is varchar(8000). I do not want to use varchar(max) since that will be deprecated at some point.
The datatypes only need to be used for within the United States (English).
Thus would you let me know what the largest field size is that I can use?
