I am converting an Access database to SQL Server 7.0 and am not sure the
"memo" fields in Access are converting correctly.  What type should these
fields be in SQL Server?  Thanks



What datatype to use for Access memo fields?

These are usually translated to the text type in SQL Server.  If the memos
aren't really long, you could consider a varchar which can hold up to 8KB
(depending on the size of the other columns in the row).

I made a Word-document, using the bookmark option, where I
can add text in from the SQL-database.

I made a program in VB6 wich contains code like this to
call the fields:

MyWordApp.Selection.TypeText (rs1.fields("Note"))

I had no problems with the normal fields, but it seems
that a field declared as a "Memo-field" isn't able to do
Does anybody know a solution for this?
