I'm using an Oracle 8.1.17i Database and client.

I'm programming an application that uses the database to store large XML message. It's built in VB6 and uses ADO 2.7 to connect to retrieve the information.
When an error occours, it will have to load this message and send it again.

The problem I'm having is the following.
When retrieving the message from the database, I only get the first 100 characters. When I use the method ActualSize it sais the field is 100 long.

Whe using the DBA Studio, I see the complete field value.

What's going on here???
