    Problem with Access

    Hey guys, im using Access XP and im putting together a database for my car site. There is a column named "Comments" and when i try to enter a paragraph, it wont paste it all, it says "The text is to long to be edited"

    How can i make that column allow an unlimited amount of text in it?

    Thanks!

    So could you explain how you solved the problem? I'm not familiar with Access XP - were you using the wrong field datatype?

    I'm guessing he found the MEMO data type.
