    Record too large (Access XP)

    When attempting to enter records in a table, I get a message that says "Record too large." What could cause that to happen?

    You have given enough detail to determine the problem. How many fields does the table have? Are you doing the data entry directly into a table, into a query, or into a form? What kind of fields are involved in the table? How large is the database?

    According to the table specifications in the online help, the number of characters in a record (excluding Memo and OLE Object fields) has a maximum of 2,000.

    I don't know why, but I am no longer getting the error message. It seems to have fixed itself for no apparent reason! Thanks for the replies!
