Is there a way to import a text file into a table that has a field of width 250 characters? I was trying to import a fixed width text file into a table and in the import specification, i have defined a field of width 250 characters .. And when i tried to import the file , i am getting an error saying "The size of a field is too large". I know that in Access the maximum size of a field allowed is 255. But my field is only 250, then how come its "too large " !!!
