The description of the @blobfmt parameter of the sp_makewebtask stored procedure states that it:

   Specifies whether all columns of text or image datatypes should be
   embedded in the same results page (NULL, the default)...

However, if you embed a text column in the result page, it will be truncated after the 255th character.


There are several ways to work arounds this problem. Choose the one of the following, as appropriate for your application:

  • Use the @blobfmt to add text as an URL. This will work for data up to 4 KB.

  1. Use Active Server Pages and Active Data Objects.
  2. Use IDC scripts.
  3. Use CGI scripts.
