Cannot insert Large text into Database Memo field

I'm trying to insert this text into a memo field:

Set cnn = CreateObject("A DODB.Connection ")
str = Server.MapPath( "database/alumni.mdb")
strDB = "Provider=MICRO SOFT.JET.OLEDB. 4.0;Data Source=" & str
cnn.Open strDB
Set rst = CreateObject("A DODB.Recordset" )

sql = "INSERT INTO tblMessage (MessageID, UserID, PostTypeID, Subject,
DatePosted, MessageText, Active) Values ('" & vMessageID & "','" &
vUser & "', " & vPostType & ",'" & vSubject & "','" & vDatePosted &
"','" & vMessageText & "',0)"

rst.Open sql, cnn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimisti c

vMessageText = "This is a test just to see if it will blow up on a
large comment. Just testing again. Don't mind me."

Can I put this into my database field or is it too much and if not,
how do I solve this issue. I need to be able to post messages and
input for large fields.

Why are you using a recordset, and specifying cursors/locks? Recordsets are
for *retrieving* data, not affecting data. Change your rst open line to the
following:

cnn.execute sql, , 129

And get rid of the set rst = line.

If this does not work, post what "doesn't work" means.

Thanks Aaron, that fixed my problem. Sorry for such a newbie problem.
That seemingly has solved the problem. For some reason I was having
trouble storing large text inputs with punctuation. I'm not sure about
apostrophes, but now commas, periods, and any other punctuations seem to
work. Thanks again.

Hi folks, I have an Access 2000 db with a memo field. Into the memo field I put text with bold attributes, URL etc etc What I need to to is converting the rich text contained into the memo field in plain text. That's because I truncate the string text but if, when I truncate it there's a rich tag the code following the truncated string is corrupted. Don't know if it's clear enough.

Is there a way to combine text fields into one memo field? This is an existing database. Some people in the database may have several "contact" entries where they have a "note" in a text field. I would like to figure a way to combine all the "note" fields for each person into one memo field. Thank you

I'm adding and updating records in an Access .mdb via WWW .asp page. Authored in Dreamweaver 2004 MX. Help is welcome on this one. I have a great set of pages that work fine, but it seems that insert or update pages don't always work now on some records . . . It seems that when lots of text is shoved into a memo fields the database ID for that record gets messed up. Intial record insertion goes OK, but updating is then hosed.

Hi and thanks, I have a Journalist database for tracking writers from various magazines and would like a field that could hold the text of their articles as they are published. The Memo field would allow 65K characters but with time even this would not provide the necessary space. The field need not hold graphics, although that would be nice if possible, and I will not need to run queries against it. It is simply

I have a form where "notes" are entered on an individual. Unfortunately, these notes are usually longer than the 255 characters allowed in a single text box. To get around this, I have three note boxes set up on the form (note1, note2, and note3). When one fills up, the user can tab to the next one and continue typing. This works but it is very cumbersome and sloppy. Is there an easier way?

This is mainly a speed question. In this example: I have a QuotesHdr table that has a few memo fields. If these memo fields are used extensively by some users, and if their are a large number of records in QuotesHdr, should I break out the memo fields into a separate table? The thinking here is that, for Quotes selection dropdowns that display all entries in QuotesHdr for selection, I would think that the entire record comes down over...

I am new to Access and I'm having trouble with a database someone else created. I am wondring why I am not being able to insert more than 255 characters to a memo field in Access 2003.
