Long strings


D

DanRoy

I have written an application in Access VB. I move data from/to Excel
programatically using VB. Excel allows strings > 255 characters to be stored
in a cell. Access limits string lengths to 255 characters. I have used
arrays of strings, where you could define an array to have 256 strings, each
256 cahracters long.

Can arrays be stored in an access table as a long string, so it can be
unpacked when exported?

If so, since i am limited to using access string-manipulation of the excel
input, how would i break down a 600 character input string from excel to be 3
strings in the array?

Access limits Text fields in Tables to 255 characters... but you can use a
Memo field and store a gigabyte if you need to do so. String variables in VBA
are not limited to 255 (there's a limit but I've never run into it).
