Memo snippet

Hi all,

This is my first post here. I have been looking everywhere on the forums and
all over the net but i cannot find anything about this.

I did find one tutorial ages ago but didnt have a use for it at the time.
What i would like to do is have a page that cycles through a database and
display lets say the last 5 new records. Then display the first 200
characters of a memo field and have a "more" link which opens the full
record in a detail page?

A good example is http://www.ananova.com/ But you dont click a "more" link
just the title of the news article.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks
Mike

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).

Place a command button by the memo field which opens an unbound...

This is mainly a speed question. In this example: I have a QuotesHdr table that has a few memo fields.

The thinking here is that, for Quotes selection dropdowns that...

I've been asked to construct a database which will require several memo fields. This database will be the standard frontend/backend mdb configuration. I have read many posts describing the corruption problems associated with memo fields, especially in a networked environment. Am I asking for trouble if I go ahead with this project?
