Missing data when exporting to excel

P: n/a
G
When I export data from access to excel by with "export" or "Analyze
with" I seem to loose parts of some fields (long text strings). Is
there a way to export it all to excel?

Thanks

An Excel cell can hold a maximum of 255 characters.
If you are exporting from memo fields you will lose everything after this.

I'd try exporting as tab-delimited text. If opening it later in Excel,
I expect you would lose the long strings. However, the data should be
there, and you could get at it with other programs. Search first for
any tab characters currently existing in the fields.

Flag: IIF(InStr(1,[FieldName],chr(9)),"Found","None")

You alternatively could take apart the strings and split them out into
multiple fields using the Len(), Left(), and Mid() functions.
