hi everyone,
           i am using VB6.0 and MS Access 2000.

I want to update the table column by field size alone.

I don't want to drop the table or column.

Is there a way to do it ?.

Other than to insert the column and copy the contents to this and then Delete the table column.

Your help is really appreciated.
