SQL Server fundamentally does NOT allow you to resize a field. Period.
If Interdev allows you to do it, its creating a new table and copying
the data, plus patching all your DRIs. Not a difficult thing, just
tedious. Trying to do this on a table like MasterAccounts would
prove to be very painful and possibly causing corrupt data in your
database if its bust during the time. Not something I care to do. :(
