Unbound Textbox Character limit

P: n/a
I have a bound form for employee evaluations. This form brings in the
Name, Employee Number, SSN etc. I have 8 unbound text boxes for
evaluation info to be entered into. From my understanding these should
not be limited to a number of characters. All the information is
transferred to a word template. I do not want to store the evaluation
information as it is confidential and not necessary. The form works
great until the user enters more than 255 characters in the unbound
text boxes. The user gets a message "String Too Long" and none of the
info gets transferred. The Word template has text form fields and the
character limits are set to unlimited. I need these text boxes on the
form to be unlimited. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
