    I think text is limited to 255; memo type bumps the limit up to 65,000+

    Amadea is right...A text box on a Form or a Report can be bound to either a Text field type, or a Memo field type. If you find that You can not either enter or display the quantity of characters you would like, then simply go into your respective table and change the field type from 'Text' to 'Memo'.
