I'm sorry to have to post a note here, but I can't seem to get around a 
problem I'm having. I've got a database that contains fields (not memo 
fields) that are very long strings and when I use RODBC, they get 
truncated... which is bad... I can verify that all of the string is in 
the database (visually), but can't figure out why strings over 600 
characters seem to get truncated... I haven't been able to get around 
this and can't seem to find out more than a couple of emails from 2006 
on the subject.
