Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps


SQL Server usually presents an error on an attempt to insert more data into a field than it can hold. It typically throws an error message similar to the following:

Msg 8152, Level 16, State 14, Line 15
 String or binary data would be truncated.
 The statement has been terminated.

To prevent this (when needed, of course), you have two options:

Turn ANSI_WARNINGS off
    SET ANSI_WARNINGS {ON|OFF}

Pass through a variable

declare @testString varchar(5)
    set @testString = 'This is a long string'
    print @testString
