Of course, a Memo data type field in Access can store up to 65,536 alphanumeric characters.

The text datatype is probably your best bet, it's for human-readable character BLOB data.

Depending on character sets etc you might need one of its variants, and if there's formatting you might need to use the image datatype instead (which is raw binary BLOB).
