can i extend the default limit of 256 bytes on memo fields?



when initialising a table with data imported from an Excel spreadsheet, I get
warning messages of field truncation on my memo-type field. It seems to
happen at around 256 characters. Can I increase this limit to (say) 512?

If you're using File | Get External Data ... | Import for the import of the
spreadsheet, that will truncate long text strings to 255 characters.
Instead, use a macro or VBA code to run the TransferSpreadsheet
action/method; it will not truncate long text strings.
