change the Field type from Text to Memo
you can do this in the design view of the table

Or if the field is set as text you can adjust the number of characters from 1 to 255
By changing the Field Size property of this field in the table.

You should only use memo fields if you need more than 255 characters

OK thanks.

You did not mention what your limits were.
If you were needing more than 255 characters, then capricon1's solution would have been best.

Enjoy the weekend.
