    Net-Inspect publication message 'Server was unable to process Request...'?

    'Server was unable to process request.---> String or Binary data would be truncated'

    April 3rd, 2019

    This article discusses Net-Inspects field limits and the error messages you may receive when you exceed the number of characters allowed in the specified field (see screenshot). InspectionXpert data fields can support a large number of characters, but if you export to Net-Inspect, the field character limits are smaller. This character limit also includes spaces.


    You can set the InspectionXpert character limits to match those of Net-Inspect.

    Step-by-Step Guide:

    • Go to the 'Home' tab
    • Select 'Options'
    • Go to 'Application Options'
    • Select 'Net-Inspect'
    • Go to 'General'
    • Select 'Enforce Net-Inspect Data Field Sizes'
    • Select 'Appy'
    • 'Select 'OK'

    The text limit will prevent any excess text from exporting to Net-Inspect. In some fields exceeding the character maximum will prevent the upload to Net-Inspect. When the field character limits are enforced, you cannot enter more text than the field limit allows manually.

    What are the character limits set out by Net-Inspect?
