Field size limit Access 365 Field size limit Access 365 TrekBiker (TechnicalUser) (OP) 6 Apr 23 09:31 Is there a way around the maximum field size of 255 characters in Access 365. The old Memo field allowed this. RE: Field size limit Access 365 combo (TechnicalUser) 6 Apr 23 11:35 It is 'Long text' data type now: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/the-mem... combo RE: Field size limit Access 365 TrekBiker (TechnicalUser) (OP) 7 Apr 23 08:55 Yes, but the Long Text field is still limited to 255 characters. RE: Field size limit Access 365 Andrzejek (Programmer) 7 Apr 23 12:08 Not according to the info in the link combo provided: Quote (Long Text)Long Text In .accdb files, the Long Text field works the same as the Memo field of old. That is, it can store up to about a gigabyte of text, even though controls on forms and reports can only display the first 64,000 characters. You can set Long Text fields to display Rich Text, which includes formatting like bold and underline. ---- Andy "Hmm...they have the internet on computers now"--Homer Simpson RE: Field size limit Access 365 TrekBiker (TechnicalUser) (OP) 7 Apr 23 13:23 Ah, apologies, I tried importing the data again and got the full length using Long Text. I have two sets of data to import and then merge so will check if this caused the reduction to 255 characters. Either that or plain human error. Many thanks. RE: Field size limit Access 365 TrekBiker (TechnicalUser) (OP) 7 Apr 23 13:36 Yes confirmed, second go gives full lengths. Apologies again.
