Change SQL Query Results Length

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 5 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPWhen you execute a query in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio, you can chooe to output the result to text, but this is limited to 256 characters which can not always be enough (my next planned post will have an example of this).

The setting for this can be changed in Tools >> Options.

Change the field Maximum number of characters displayed in each column from 256 to 8000:

Click OK to save the change; you will need to click the New Query button for the change to take effect.

What should we write about next?

Please leave this field empty.
