I am using some generic SQL statements to grab data from an Excell spreadsheet. In the comments field, most rows have the word &#039none&#039. 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?
