    two general asp questions

    I have two general asp database questions;

    1) If you use a memo datatype in a database table, is there a field size limit of 255 or can it be a big as you would like?

    2) Again with a memo field, can you use html tags within that field? So if I want to bold some text within that field, can I put <b></b> in there?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Yup, you can insert just about anything into a database, but just remember to comment out single quotes with another one. I have answered that question so many times I think I will make a sticky thread for it.
