aCCESS 2003 Text field only allows 50 characters

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.
thx experts,

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