XML Data Truncated with SqlDatareader

I was working on XML feeds for my site and found a strange problem.

The XML returned by the SP was getting truncated. After ‘googling’ for a while, I found this on MSDN:
The XML data row is truncated at 2,033 characters when you use the SqlDataReader object

When you read Extensible Markup Language (XML) data from Microsoft SQL Server by using the SqlDataReader object, the XML in the first column of the first row is truncated at 2,033 characters. You expect all of the contents of the XML data to be contained in a single row and column.

This was exactly my problem. I found the solution as well. The solution is to use  ExecuteXmlReader  instead of SqlDataReader .
