    Database 'field' capacity problem

    For the past several years I've been printing out Avery mailing labels from the DesignPro 5 Limited Edition software. Yesterday I tried to update the database. On one 'field' I wrote the abbreviation for Minnesota as 'MN'. A box popped up telling me a maximum of 2 characters are allowed in the state 'field'. Well, duh, what's wrong with MN?? It wouldn't accept the entire 'field'!
    Then I typed in an additional address for another person in another 'field'.His last name is 'Christensen'. A boxed popped up saying there is a maximum of 9 characters permitted in the "last name" field! Where'd that come from??!
    Do any of you have a solution besides changing software? Thanks. jim

    A neighbor, who's a pretty smart computer guy, had me to go to 'Database'>'Modify Data Base Fields'>click on the field that needed to changed>Edit--and it worked! jim
