Copy text columns to nvarchar

Hi,

I have a problem, I have a table with a text type column and a
nvarchar(2000) type column on my MS SQL 2000 Server.

I know that the longest text in the text field is 1000 chars. I want to
copy the content the content of the text field into the nvarchar field.

I tried convert and cast but after the update there are only 255 chars
in the nvarchar field.

Best regards
Marc

I don't believe that. Add a len(nvarcharfield) to you query and you
will make a revelation.

The next step of this operation is to go Tools->Options->Results and
change the setting Max characters per column.
