I am having a problem related to the use of the following ole automation stored procedure:sp_OASetProperty

I am trying to set a variable of dType varchar 2000. When I call this sp, to set the property to the value of the variable, the SQL Server datatype is converted into a Visual Basic datatype, converting my varchar 2000 to string 255 causing unwanted truncation.

Does anyone have any idea how I can actually get around this problem? It would be great to get a quick fix for this.

Thanks in advance.
