I was looking at the text 'max length' attribute, and it's 255?! I need to store page(s) of text, is there a way around the max?

You may want to check out data types Memo or OLE Object. They should be able to help you out...

CLOB would be another way to do it.

And welcome to the Ranch, Mr Fernandez.
