Union Query Truncates Memo Fields

I am sorry if this topic is tired, but after all that I have read I am
still in the woods here. I have built a database to handle weekly and
monthly reports of what people are doing. They submit what they are
working on and then you input a date and the info is narrowed allowing
a report to be created containing all of the memo fields submitted
during those dates. My Source Query gets all the memo fields in their
entirety (greater than 255 chars), and then a Union Query puts the data
in a format that is easy to read i.e.:

Header A
User 1's Entry
User 3's Entry

Header B
User 1's Entry
User 2's Entry
User 4's Entry.....

The union query cuts off the fields at 255 characters. From previous
experience does this look like it is easy to solve. Here is some of
the SQL if that helps.
SELECT "a _GENERAL ITEMS" as Category, [General Items] as Item from
[Mk 36 01Jan Source] UNION
Select "c _OPN FUNDING", [Blank Space] FROM [Mk 36 01Jan Source]
Select "c (5) Procurement", [Procurement_OPN] FROM [Mk 36 01Jan
Source] UNION .....UNION
[Upcoming Events of Notice] FROM [Mk 36 01Jan Source];

Thank you very much for your time,

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.

I have two select queries, "qryJobSpecsAlwaysList" and "qryJobSpecsBySchedCat," that list some fields, including a Memo field called "Description" that can contain text values that can be 500 characters or more. Both queries work great. Now I need to combine the two outputs into a single output. So I wrote a simple Union query that looks like this: SELECT qryJobSpecsAlwaysList.Description FROM qryJobSpecsAlwaysList;

Hi all, I have a query in ASP.NET that selects text from a memo field in Access (among other things). The query appears to be truncating the text at 255 characters. I've done a little research on this and found some other Google Groups threads that were helpful, but I still don't have a solution. My query is rather complicated and uses a union, but not the keyword distinct. The query is displayed in a datagrid, and I don't know how I...

This one is difficult to explain, so I will cut it down to the basics. I have a major table 'tblA' which has an autonum field 'ID-A' as primary key (of no significance to users). 'tblA' contains many fields including picture and memo fields. The main user-selectable field is 'NameA'. There is also a crossreference table (let's call it 'tblB') which provides a secondary method of accessing records in 'tblA'. The main fields in 'tblB'...

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 am working in access - using a select Query. I am including a memo field. The table has all of the data in the memo field displayed - however when I run a select query and include the memo field - the data is truncated. Any ideas?

Hello, I've developed my first Form, a simple affair that enables the user to search text in the memo fields in our database. When the "search" button is pressed, it runs a macro which runs the simple query. I have added a second field to the form, in addition to the text search field. This new field allows the user to type in an identification number, which returns all of the memo fields associated with that particular client. If the...

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

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
