What letters are you trying to type that you can't type?

There may be a validation rule in effect in the properties of the textbox, or the field it feeds to... if you are the developer, you could open it in design view and remove or change it, if need be.

Just an idea.

tawjaw might be talking about the field size limit set in the table?

Check the table properties that the field resides in, and be sure the Field Size is big enough for what you're needing. Most likely it's defaulted to 50 or less. The max is 255, if you need more then switch it to a Memo field.
