The DB Library used for the MSSQL extension does not support char and varchar columns with more than 256 characters.

char and varchar columns was extended from 256 to 8000 in SQL Server 7.0 but the DB library from Microsoft was not updated.

If you want to use wide columns use the text type.

Further textlimit only affects columns of type text. It has no effect on char or varchar columns.
