    Unanswered: Text and Varchar (max)

    Hello, I have read that microsoft is getting rid of the text datatype and replacing it with varchar. The maximum that varchar can hold is 8000 bytes. Is there a way to get above 8000 bytes without using text?

    I'd use VARCHAR(MAX), as Microsoft suggests.
