Column data type issue in transformation map screen in CA tool

Have a concern about column data type of var(max) in SQL Server db type with regards to registered tables in a project.  The data type is appearing as var(0) in the transformation map screen. Attached the screen shots of how the field data type appears or looks in the transformation map screen. I am afraid whether this would cause any issues during script execution.
