Consider the following scenario:
You create a clustered columnstore index on a partitioned table.
The maximum length of the columns in the table is greater than the 8,060-byte row limit for tables if there are variable length columns.
You use the BULK INSERT or INSERT SELECT statement to insert data into the clustered columnstore index.
In this scenario, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Message 611, Level 16, State 0
Cannot insert or update a row because total variable column size, including overhead, is 1978 bytes more than the limit.
This issue is fixed in the following cumulative updates for SQL Server:
Cumulative Update 8 for SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 2
