I have a stored procedure
I have declared a variable of type nvarchar(max) in this.
it is opening a cursor and appending some values in this string.Its not concatenating the strings beyong datalength of 7200. What can be the solution to this.

Can you post the code please? There are places where you would have to explicitly cast as varchar/nvarchar(max) or be cut off at 4000/8000 characters. Considering the length is 7200, it sounds like somewhere there's an implicit varchar(8000).

Also you can concatenate without using the cursor like this :

DECLARE @v AS NVARCHAR(MAX)
SELECT TOP 10000 @v = coalesce(@v + ', ' + M1.Name, M1.Name) FROM master.Sys.Columns M1 CROSS JOIN master.Sys.Columns M2 ORDER BY M1.Name
PRINT DATALENGTH(@v)
--257856
--EXEC (@v)

Try this:

DECLARE @v AS NVARCHAR(MAX)
SELECT TOP 10000 @v = coalesce(@v + CAST(N', ' AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) + CAST(M1.Name AS NVARCHAR(MAX)), CAST(M1.Name AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) FROM master.Sys.Columns M1 CROSS JOIN master.Sys.Columns M2 ORDER BY M1.Name
PRINT DATALENGTH(@v)

Try this:

DECLARE @v AS NVARCHAR(MAX)
SELECT TOP 10000 @v = coalesce(@v + CAST(N', ' AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) + CAST(M1.Name AS NVARCHAR(MAX)), CAST(M1.Name AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) FROM master.Sys.Columns M1 CROSS JOIN master.Sys.Columns M2 ORDER BY M1.Name
PRINT DATALENGTH(@v)


I don't see the difference with my solution Micheal, what I am missing?

In the example given, @parameterID holds a list of IDs in sequence and there is no break in the sequence.

Could you resolve your issue by finding Categorys between the first and last IDs.

Alternatively, why not process the string into a temp table using string slicing and then use in (select categoryID from #temptable) instead of the long text string of @parameterID
