    Question Unanswered: memo field on forms

    I have a memo field on one form that shows only 255 characters, but the same field on a different form shows more.

    What could be causing this and how would one fix it.

    Thanks,

    Check the table where the field is bound to. It appears as though one field in the table is set up as a memo field and one is set up as a text field (max size 255).

    This is the same field from the same table on two different forms. The form control that is malfunctioning allows entry of more than 255 but truncates afterupdate (visually only). The table still holds the right data, but the form shows only 255 characters. The other form, using the same table and field show all data.
