hello, i'am trying to use notes sql odbc to link/import tables from a domino (r5) database and am running into some format issues. one of the fields in the domino database has a comment field with quite a bit of data, certainly over 255 char. When i import or link the table thru odbc and look at the design, the field "comments" is memo type and when i open the table, only the first 255 char are making into access. Is this a program issue or an user one? if later, can you please help solve this issue? Thank you.

Not having notes, I cant test this theory but

can u run pass thru queries using Domino? if so, does it return full size in comments?

if u can do that, what then if u did this - 2 recordsets, read one (passthru), write to the other

If u dont know what a passthru query is, well its a normal query, syntax is that of the remote DB, and it runs on the server. To set one up, just go to Query menu option, select SQL specific then Pass thru

dim rsDomino as DAO.Recordset
dim rsAccess as DAO.Recordset

set rsDomino = CurrentDB.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM myPassThruQuery")
set rsAccess  = CurrentDB.OpenRecordset("SELECT * FROM myAccessTable")

do while rsDomino.EOF = False
    rsAccess.AddNew
    rsAccess!somefield = rsDomino!somefield
    'etc
    rsAccess.Update
    rsDomino.MoveNext
loop

rsDomino.Close
rsAccess.Close
set rsDomino=Nothing
set rsAccess=Nothing
