I have an Access table called ORACLEVIEWS, and a field called "ViewTables" that is a memo - up to 1500 characters.  When I query it, ADO cuts off the memo to 255 characters.  from the immediate window, when I type ? rstmp("ViewTables") it only gives me 255 characters.  How do I get the whole memo?
sSql = "SELECT * FROM ORACLEVIEWS"
   rsTmp.Open sSql, db, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly  
   If Not rsTmp.EOF Then 
      If rsTmp("View") <> "" And rsTmp("ViewTables") <> "" Then
 
         Debug.Print rsTmp("ViewTables")

Open in new window
