Hi Experts,
I need to link an Excel file to my Access application, however realized that most of the fields are being defined as short text (255) after being linked thru the wizard.
Now this is causing trouble as fields with longer text are being truncated, and I don't see a way of being able to change these mappings.
Any (easy) suggestion?
