Avoid truncation

Hello,
One of the fields in my Excel file has more than 255 characters. When
importing into Access, that field gets truncated. Can someone help me?

Thanks,
Ellen

The maximum length of a text field is 255 characters. If you are importing
to a new table, it will default to a text data type and truncate the field.
You can solve this by defining your table in design mode and make the field a
memo data type and import to the existing table.
