Runtime Error 3163
Posted on 2003-03-26
I'm new to programming in VB6 but have recently developed a database using the DAO structure.
For the most part everything seems to run fine but every so often I get a runtime error 3163 which states
"The field is too small to accept the amount of data you are attempting to add. Try inserting or pasting less data"
I cannot seem to pin-point why this error occurs. This is particularly frustating as it usually pops up when I've not added anything new to the database and I'm just viewing the records.
The only thing I can think is that the font sizes I use for displaying the data may be too large but I can't see how this is the case. I added the larger fonts to make the data more readable.
Any help would be most appreciated.
