    Unanswered: SELECT query truncating data from memo field at 255 characters

    hi all,

    i'm attempting to run a SELECT query on a memo field, but unfortunately, my data is truncated at 255 characters. does anybody know why this is, and what i can do to fix it?

    here is the line of code. i know it works, as it works perfectly for all other fields. this is from a module within access 2002.

    ("SELECT * FROM [Imports] WHERE [F41] = " & pdqID & "")

    does anybody know anything i can do to clear this up?

    hmmm.... "Imports"

    where is this data coming from?

    you are probably only getting 255 chars from the source (i seem to remember that many access import-filters drop dead at 255 chars)

    currently using SS 2008R2
