    Disappearing Memo text (2003)

    I've created a query which returns text from a Memo field. However, the query will only show the first 255 characters from the field. Is there a way to retrieve all of the Memo text? Thanks, Andy.

    There are several situations in which Access will truncate a memo field to 255 characters (the maximum length of a text field). See Microsoft Access tips: Truncation of Memo fields.
