This exception occures when your datatype,size does not match with database field attributes.

String or binary data would be truncated Error suggests your Datatype in Database is smaller than inserted value.

1. Increase datatype length or decrease length of value before inseration.

the size of the datatype is same as the attribute in the database. and i am inserting less datatype than i put in max size. and still i am facing on this error.
Its the error because of data-type and what the size you are passing for inserting data to that field.Suppose i have declared a field named name varchar[20] and i am trying to inserting name of more than 20 characters then i will get an error like "String or binary data would be truncated". So please check all the field.Hope this will work.If not let me know about the error.

when user store data at that time size of data type is less as compared to required data type size then it gives such kind of error solution to increase your data type size...
