    Text Box Length (A2K)

    I'm creating a report that has several text boxes on it. From the error message I'm getting when trying to preview it, the text box won't display if there are more than 128 characters. From searching the archives, a text box can certainly contain more characters than 128, but I can't figure out how to do it.

    Any help?

    What is the text of the error message you get?

    I've never heard of a situation where a text box on a report will not display more than 128 characters. There are circumstances in which the text will be truncated to 255 characters, but not 128 as far as I know.

    It says, "The identifier that begins with "'MY TEXT APPEARS IN THE QUOTES"' is too long. Maximum length is 128.

    It would seem that there is an error in the control source of the text box. The text is seen as the name of a field. What is the control source of the text box?
