I have an Access 2003 form that I put a text box on to capture comments. The box is 7" long and 1.5" high, but I can only enter 50 characters into the box and then it won't accept any more. I scrolled through the properties, said it could grow, shrink, scroll bars, etc, but nothing I do will allow me to enter more than 50 characters.
HELP...
thx experts,
-Bob

Change the table field size to 255.  Your field name is of "Text" data type and for the size change it to 255.
