    Angry Unanswered: exporting memo columns to excel?

    I have some memo columns in a temp table. When I export the table to Excel, the memo columns get cut off around the 256 mark (character length). Is there a way to export memo columns to Excel?

    These fields have carriage-returns in them as well, if that makes a difference.

    Pretty embarrassing when mgmt asks 'why is this getting cut off?'

    Sounds to me as if the Excel field is too short. I dont know... you might want to check in to seeing if there is a way to make an excel field larger than the 255 characters.

    Sorry I couldnt help more. If I run accross anything I will let you know.

    Have you ever thought about thinking on purpose?

    In my Excel 95 plenty of stuff comes up when Memo is entered in the help index. It all looked very tiring
