Problem in RFX_Text (CRecordset) While more than 256 char.

Is there a better way than RFX_Text to handle large data fields? using CRecordset..
RFX_Text defaults to 255 characters maximum, I need to set this higher for a Memo field.
I think this is a documented error in MFC.
When i enter the data more than 255 char into the field it breaks. Hope anyone can help me.

In terms of fixing the code, as you mention you can change the max. characters using something like....

RFX_Text(pFX, _T("[VARIABLE]"), m_Variable, 10000);

where the length you specify is 10000. I am currently using this for a record set talking to SQL Server, which has no concept of memo fields and *always* requires a maximum length to be set.

I don't believe there is another way of doing this, since I imagine other databases work in a similar way to SQL Server

Thanks Darren_Simons,

Your answer is quite right and helped me too...
The same answer is there in the VC help and MSDN CD but i did't seen that before.

Thanks once again.
