You are welcome. This one stumped me for quite awhile.

This article was interesting to me. I have gotten the error when creating tables, however when I create a table in SQL Server 7.0 it lets me even though I exceed the max row size.

Access 97 was like that, but Access2K enforces the limit at design time. Not sure which method I like better!

You can create the table in SQL 2000 as well, but you will have issues if the data exceeds the size.

I agree that MS doesn't do a very good job documenting the page size. While it's interesting to poke around the internals, would be a lot easier if they either just quoted the number you came up with or made it clearer in the docs. I try to avoid getting anywhere NEAR 8000 bytes in width, but if you need to go for the max for whatever reason is nice to know what is really doable. Good article.

I found the article informative and quite helpfull. I have long been curious about the size but had no time to test this myself. Good piece of work.
