when using nvarchar/varchar parameters with the (max) option, any print statement crops the output.

This isn't fixed in 2008 R2, what is happening?

This issue is especially annoying, when you are creating utility stored procedures, which generates large transact code output. Now we have to print code in small piece and this can actually break the script, because the outputtet code, could be split in the middle of a keyword

We see far too many half-baked features, and they are all very irritating and require us to write a lot of code that ought to be unneccessary. This is a classic example of that sort of mistake by MS.

I agree, this is just lazy coding on Microsoft's part. Why put in a feature if it's not fully functional? Do they enjoy just teasing us or something? Come on Microsoft, I would get canned if I did something like this.

I can't understand why MS does something in half. Make it in full or just don't do it!

If you can store it, the tools should be able to access it. This can be a setting in SSMS to set the max display, but it should be the limit of storage if someone needs that.

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. This issue is not sufficiently critical to fix in SP2. However, we will consider fixing this in a future release of SQL Server.
