I'm working on converting the template gdb to our sql server.  I had no problem tranfering the schema and data via the XML conversion, but I do have a problem with the RoadCenterline layer in the template mxd.

The error I get is in the ArcMap Drawing Errors window:
"Underlying DBMS error [Micorsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0:'CHAR_LENGTH' is not a recognized built-in function name.]
[-feature name-]

Any thoughts?  I've looked at the schema and all of the attributes for the RoadCenterlines layer and cannot find anything that says 'CHAR_LENGTH' anywhere.  I'm assuming it has to do with the difference between the File GDB and the SQL GDB.  The roads are still drawing and labeling, so I do not even know what is really going wrong with this error.
