Hello friends,

There is a big xml string in a column (data type defined as a text)
When I query in query analyzer, (after setting Tools--> options-->Query Results --> SqlServer --> Resulsts to Grid --> XML data --> UNLIMITED)
I couldn't get to see complete xml string.

How can I see this data?

Thanks & Regards,
Sean Lange

You can't see it in SSMS. The most it will return is 65k. If you need more text you need to use another application.

--edit--

Just realized you are asking about xml results....I don't know about the xml results.

How about exporting the column to a file using SSIS or the Import/Export Wizard?

BWAA-HAAA!!! I solved that problem long ago.... I don't let people put XML in databases that I have a say so on. ;-)

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

That is why I have no idea how to view more than 5MB of data in a single column. w00t
