Delphi SQLITE3 TDataprovider truncating strings

I have a delphi application utilising SQLite3 as a database. My problem is that when I use the dataprovider with the TClientDataset to pass the queried data to RAVE Reports the strings are all fine for the first 20 characters then after that they are a mixture of ??? and other characters. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Can you post data field structure.
Alternately try and display this string value in a message box to know whether it it being displayed properly
Seems more a like a problem with rave report.

I have displayed in a text box directly from the SQL and it is definetly a issue with SQLite3 and dataprovider and Tclientdataset controls as running through normal query componets the data is fine but i need to submit via a dataset to RAVE and its here that the issue is.

Works fine up to 20 characters

You should have posted field structure for the mentioned field .
If the textbox is displaying field value like rave reports that has certainly got  something to
do with sqlite or its data provider.
Have you manually checked the value in a sqlite data manager where you can view the value
There is also a command line utility 'sqlite.exe' which allows you to query on sqlite database.
Please check the values in table.
