Truncation of memo field from Access Form

P: 1
I have a form set up (frm_enter_action) which has an unbound text box on it (description) allowing users to enter standard text. This field is then used to insert a record into a table (tbl_cases_actions) using the following SQL statement :-

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. INSERT INTO [tbl_cases_actions] (description) Values (Forms!frm_enter_action.description)
The text appears to be truncated in the table at 512 characters when brought into the description field, which is set as a memo field.

Is there any reason why this is happening, and is there any way i can bring in the complete text field?
