when i define a field to be of type memo, i&#039;ve seen the format set as "/1000" or "1000" (don&#039;t remember which way the slash went) i&#039;ve looked everywhere on mdsn to find an answer, and i know that it really doesn&#039;t have to do with the length because i&#039;ve tested it, so what does it mean???? thanks<BR><BR>Jason
