String Or Binary Data Would Be Truncated

Denis Gobo shares one of the biggest improvements in SQL Server 2019 CTP 2.0:

And there we go, you get the table name, the column name as well as the value, notice that the message id changed from 8152 to 2628 now

Msg 2628, Level 16, State 1, Line 20
String or binary data would be truncated in table ‘truncatetest.dbo.TruncateMe’, column ‘somevalue’. Truncated value: ‘33333’.
The statement has been terminated.

So it looks it only returns the first value that generates the error, let’s change the first value to fit into the column and execute the insert statement again

It’s not perfect, as it only shows one column from the first failed row, but that is still a┬álot more information than we had before and I’m happy that this is making into the product.
