String or binary data would be truncated

Scuffling with ‘String or binary data would be truncated’

While the above post was absolutely right about this problem, origins & solution, mine was a bit different:
The solution lay not in the table, but with the table audit. While the description column was defined as [varchar (30)] in the original table, in the Audit table it had to be settled with [Varchar (20)]. Obviously, it wasn't enough: you give the user room to write more in the description column, and they'll use it.

(Yes, of course I had to put the description in the audit table, as the definitions of what's being audit changes all the time)
