When writing data to a SQL table, you may run into problems with field size limits. This Java code takes the value passed to the SQL Server table and tests to see if the string is greater than its maximum required length.

If the string doesn't exceed its maximum length, the Java code does nothing. If the string does exceed it, the code shortens the string to its necessary size.
