I have a simple webform that will allow unauthenticated users to input their information, including name. I gave the name field a limit of 50 characters to coincide with my database table where the field is varchar(50), but then I started to wonder.
Is it more appropriate to use something like the Text column type or should I limit the length of the name to something reasonable?
I'm using SQL Server 2005, in case that matters in your response.
EDIT: I did not see this broader question regarding similar issues.
