Defining a column in access to increase the length of the column

It appears that the column width in access is too short and some of the names are being truncated.  How can I define the columnn width to be large enough to fit the largest string.

Go to table design and check the length of the field.
A normal text field can be expanded to hold 255 characters, enough for most names.
