1. Considering that you can "see" the whole string in one application and not in another, it can't be seen as "corrupted data". It looks like a difference in the way the respective visual interfaces display the strings. Could it be that the problem data contains linebreak characters, that one application treats as trimmed whitespace, while the other applies the actual linebreak behaviour, meaning it can't display the rest of the string in a single-line control?

2. Have you queried the "offending" records using isql?
