Yes, you are correct that the perl script is connecting to a MS-SQL database server. The strange thing is that on both linux servers the perl script is the same and even the database table is the exact same table. On the original server I can see the full contents of the database column from the perl script output running on that server. However on the new linux server running the same perl script against the same table the contents of the varchar 5000 column are being truncated.
I tried your work around. Although it didn't complain, the results were the same, i.e. the column was still truncated. There seems to be some setting at server level or something that is affecting the size of the column contents that can be retrieved by perl script/s.
