Limiting the Amount of Characters Output in a Column Using the SQL TEXTSIZE Command

TEXTSIZE can limit the amount of data returned for the following data types:

varchar(max)
nvarchar(max)
varbinary(max)
text
ntext
image

To set the TEXTSIZE use the following command:

SET TEXTSIZE (number)

So, if I were to type SET TEXTSIZE (100) it would limit the amount of characters to 100.
