    Question Unanswered: Performance comparison between VARCHAR and CLOB?

    Any idea on performance comparison between VARCHAR and CLOB? For example, if I want to insert or update 4000 characters in a field of a row and I am confused whether that column's type would better be decalred as VARCHAR or CLOB, what do you suggest?

    I suggest you not declare anything as a CLOB in sql server.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.
