Memo field truncated in query/report?

Hi,
I have a report based on a query. The query grabs a memo field from
my main table, yet when I display the memo field in the report it
truncates the memo field (the field needs to hold more than 255
characters). The table holds all the memo text, but the query seems
to truncate the memo field to 255 chars?

This seems like there should be a relatively easy fix, but I can't
seem to find it.

Any ideas/help would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
Gordon

Make sure you don't have any formatting on the memo field in the query
or the report. Any type of formattin on a memo field seems to truncate
it.

Checked... No I don't have any formatting on the memo field, in the
query or the report?

Have you set the "Can Grow" feature of your text box in the report to
"Yes". If you don't the amount of text displayed is limited.

I have just run into a problem where I have a text box control on a form that is linked to a memo field in a table. When I type a really long comment into the field, it allows me to type it and then does save the entire comment to the table. However, when I use a query which includes this field to send to a report, the field is truncated at the old text field limit of 255 characters. I have ascertained that it is happening in the query,...

I'm making a report that uses a query as its source. The query references a memo field that typically has carriage returns in it. When I go to run the report, it seems to have truncated the fields at the carriage return. Are there any particular problems using such fields coming through a query in a report? The query really seemed to hack it up. Steve Lefevre

I have a query that combines the results of three related tables. The memo fields are truncated to 255 characters, but I need all the information in them. I'm aware that removing code such as DISTINCT and GROUPBY will fix this problem (as discussed in other threads in this group), but I need to limit the query results to unique values, which is what DISTINCT does for me. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jacob

I have created a 4 Reports using the Reports Wizard in Access 2003 and the text in a memo field is being cut off. This is an inconsistent issue being that it is affecting just one of the reports. The field on the report is set to Can Grow as is the Header. The total text if 697 characters. I have read the following articles and found that they do not pertain to my issue: http://www.mcse.ms/archive153-2004-12-1311942.html ...

I am using Access 2003. I have a memo field that I have put into a report. My problem is that the report will only show a specific amount of characters in the report. It does not display the entire field. I have checked the properties and they are set to memo so what is happening here? I think it is happening in more than one field but I have only been able to identify or replicate the problem in one field. Thanks

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
