I am using some generic SQL statements to grab data from an Excell spreadsheet. In the comments field, most rows have the word 'none'. One row has well over 255 characters in this field.<BR>However the field is truncated when I try to display it. When put manually put the text in the first row, it is all displayed.<BR>I think that eithe ole, or VBscript is making assumptions about the data types here. how can I get around this?
