Hi
I get this error when i try to insert data larger than 50 characters.

I am using ASP with Access database.

The error is

“Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e21' The field is too small to accept the amount of data you attempted to add. Try inserting or pasting less data”

thanks

Check the Access database table.  By default Access places 50 as the character limit.  255 is the maximum for all fields except for Memo Fields (Which have no limit).  You are probably exceding that limit...check the table and make sure.
