No Notifications appears when converting text column to varchar column

In Sql Server 2000 Version, I found that no Notification message box appears when converting text column to varchar but the data gets truncated to the given size for the varchar. Whereas it appears when you convert the varchar column to text column.

Do this through Enterprise Manager Console

Create a New table with a column as varchar datatype from Enterprise Manager  table created  Open the table and add one row  Successfully added the row  Open the table in Design Mode  Change the datatype to text and click on save  Gives Notification: 'test' table- Warning: Data may be lost converting column 'test' from 'varchar(255)'.  Successfully changed the column form varchar to text

Create a New table with a column as text datatype from Enterprise Manager  table created  Open the table and add one row with data length greater than 255 (long text)  Successfully added the row  Open the table in Design Mode  Change the datateype to varchar(255) and click on Save  Successfully changed the column from text to varchar  Open the table and verify the row data. Data got truncated to length 255 without any notifications

Is there a safe way to convert varchar(n) to text, other than create a new column, update, delete column, rename? I have a number of databases that were built with varvhar(n) and which should have been done with text. They're in production, and I'd rather not take the downtime needed to convert some rather large tables - the bulk update hitting every row of the large table makes it effectively unvacuumable, and vacuum full requires locks...

As we all know, there is a 8060 bytes size limit on SQL Server rows. I have a table which requires a number of text fields (5 or 6). Each of these text fields should support a max of 4000 characters. We currently store the data in varchar columns, which worked fine untill our appetite for text fields increased to the current requirement of 5, 6 fields of 4000 characters size. I am given to review a design, which esentially suggests moving...
