My SQL Server is SQL Server 2000,
My PHP is PHP 4.05
My OS is windows 2000
My table name is news,defined like:

keyword varchar(2000),
content text

I can save data to keyword but when i get is ,it only 255 bytes, I view database, data is true save in table.


$result=mssql_query("select keyword from news");
print strlent(mssql_result($result,0,0));

Its to with the TDS protocol (used for connecting to MSSQL/Sybase) apparently.  On windows its out of date and therefore doesn't support more that 255 chars, you can use a convert statement (to convert the output of the column to text) or just change the datatype to text.

Or use the ODBC functions.

not a bug in php, a bug in microsoft.

This is a limitation of the db-libraray of mssql.

Try select cast (keyword as text) from news

It's not a bug, it's a feature...

Microsoft does not support access to any MS SQL Server >6.5 features by use of isql and db-library which seems to be used by php_mssql.dll.


This means:
* no varchar etc with lengths > 255
* no unicode (ntext, nchar, nvarchar) fields.

If anyone finds a solution, please mail me!
