    Hi ,

    I was trying to link a text file that has a record of almost 250 fields
    of text data type and all these fields add upto a record of size 3000.
    When I ran the Link Text Wizard I am getting an error saying the
    "Record is too large".
    I was wondering isn't that possible to link a text file with record
    size 3000?
    Can anyone help !!

    Thanks
    Susan

    I haven't tested this - I don't have a suitable text file to use for
    testing - but according to the 'Access Specifications' topic in the help
    files ...

    <quote>
    Number of characters in a record (excluding Memo and OLE Object fields) when
    the UnicodeCompression property of the fields is set to Yes: 4,000
    </quote>

    I would imagine that the JET database engine probably can't use Unicode
    Compression with a linked text file, as the data is not actually being
    stored by JET, so it may not be possible to link the file, but you may be
    able to import it.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
