Use Multi-paragraph Text As Memo Type

Apr 23, 2006

I have a website in Asp, which is connected to a MS ACCESS database.
In this database, there is a text field (Memo type) which contains text. But in web site, it just shows a continuous single paragraph.

What should I do to fix this problem?

Thank you

Tables :: Long Text - Lost Functionality From Old Memo Type

Mar 28, 2014

I am a pretty novice user currently playing around with Access 2013 using Office 365.

I used to love the old style Memo field where people cut put in carriage returns to split up data. I am wondering if this function has been removed with this LONG TEXT FIELD or is there a way around it.

I like it because I tend to use it as a tracking field and like the newest "comments" at the top separated by a Carriage Return...

Any ideas

Memo Data Type Field On A Form

Jan 25, 2006

Hi all,

I have a question about an Access form that I am creating. I have a "Due Notes" field, which has Memo data type and I create a form "Estimates" using a text box with the control source is that "Due Notes" field to enter notes when needed.

Although I have the vertical scroll bar for that text box (due to other controls, I can not size the text box too big), does anybody know how to display that text box in form "Estimates" with the data of the last text within the size of the box without scrolling down so I can start typing for the next entry? Do I make sense to you?

Please help and let me know if you know HOW. Thanks so much in advance.

Forms :: Quick Filter Not Working When Memo-type Fields In Form

Jul 1, 2013

I recently made a new version of our database complete with forms, querys etc.. using Access 2010. It looked good and nice, but we encountered an unexpected problem. In all forms that contains memo-type fields quick filter is not working (there is no lists, checkboxes etc..). My users really like quick filters and are understandably irritated. I would understand if this disappearance would affect only memo-type fields, but it affects ALL the fields.

I also know that there are problems with memos in Access 2010. I have tried to make new forms, but every time I add memo fields quick filter stops functioning. I have also tried to change properties, options and what not, but to no use. In older versions of our forms this feature works just fine, but they were made in older version of Access (don't know which since oldest ones are from year 2003).

Record Locking - Multi User Worklist Type Database

Mar 9, 2006


Bottom line I'm in bit of a pickle, work has moved forward the migration of Office97/NT4 to Office2003/XP by 2 months (clever lot) and was hoping not have to cram for this question until at least 3-5 weeks.

I'm looking for pointers/suggestions because I now have to test in Access2003 Runtime on MONDAY!!!!

What it is, is:

I have a query which is a list of items that need to be worked out of 65,000.
Of that 65,000, 20,000 end up in the query (Actually do need looking at after an Automated process)
(it's adapting the query/process I think I need)


EntID - UniqueID for a household
Applicant1 - Number lookup value for Applicant 1
Applicant2 - Number lookup value for Applicant 2
Qualifies - 1 = Yes, 2 = No, Null = Not worked.

That's basic building block of the Query which is Drives the main Form.

What I would like is a scenario similar to this:

Person A opens record 1

Person B opens record 2

Person C opens record 3

Person C finishes record 3

Person B finishes record 2

Person C opens record 4

Person B opens record 5 (he/she took a little break)

Now that's the way I would like it to work, but there will be other factors and this is where I'm all ears for anyone who is used to this type of system.

The problem I can't figure out is that the Main Form has several subforms, but none of the data is to be edited, it is there for visual purposes only.
The users will be creating records via the Main Form through code, but not directly into any tables/queries with which I can use conventional record locking, that I can see.

My thoughts are that Person A calls up a record based on Min EntID and somehow locks it so the Person B looks for Min EntID Where not locked.

Question Time:

Please, please can someone point me in the direction of how to do it and more importantly the correct order of events?
I have tried doing the Min EntID and locking the record, but while Person A is running the Min Query, Person B is running it also so they end up with the same record as B has the record on screen while A is locking it.

In the real world Person B might open record 2 and think, nah I can't be bothered.
I would like a proffessional opnion on whether C opens record 2 or should B be made to deal with it.

I think not given the huge time constrants landed square on my lap, I would get there with smaller questions, but I've spent the last 10hrs writing a Function, to get it ready for the testing lab, where the owner has changed the requirements 7 times and my head isn't working.

All or some help given will be GREATLY received.
Any further information needed, just ask.

Hope you can help.

How To Have Text And Not Numbers In Text Data Type

Jan 13, 2006

I was wondering if there is a way of only allowing text in a text field - we need to do this for validation purposes when inporting a text file into a database. I have tried input mask but this only checks when entering new data - I have tried to use validation rule like"???????" however this means that there has to be 7 letters in each field and this is not the case. - the field is for town and a couple of the records in this field have numbers at the end which are incorrect that we want the database to reject :eek:

Text Vs. Memo Field

Are there any other advantages in using a text field verses a memo field other than memory allocation? Memory allocation seems like such a small issue these days.

Formatting Memo Text

Mar 31, 2006

I have a database with a few large memo fields, used for storing methods for carrying out equipment tests. As I eventually want to output the methods in the form of reports, I want to be able to format selected text within each memo field (e.g. make the title bold, underline bits here and there, etc.) so that when output as a report, it looks like a nicely formatted document.

Does anyone know of an Access control that is basically a text entry box, but with formatting tools (maybe a row of buttons along the top?) associated with it that allow formatting of selected text only?

Incidentally, I have already tried linking Word documents as OLE objects, but this sems to require locating and selecting a Word file for each newly created record - something I don't want to do as this database will be used by people with few computer skills. I suppose I really want to be able to store an RTF file within the database.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Your order has been shipped to following address,

Then I also want to email it using outlook 2010 but that might be a different thread.

Limiting Text In A Memo Field

May 25, 2005


Probably a really simple question, but is causing me problems! I need to be able to limit the amount of characters that can be entered into a field. For text fields I can just enter the relevant field size, but can not find an equivalent for a memo field. Validation rule warns you that there are to many characters, but doesn't seem to actually limit you.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Last Line Of Text From A Memo Field

Nov 21, 2006

Can anyone help....

I have a field on an Access db, this is a "Memo " type field which has many lines of text within it.

I need to run a query on this to get the last line of text within this field.

Aside from records where this memo field is filled in I also have records where the memo field is blank. So basically if the memo field is blank I want a blank field returned as well as fields with data.

I am using Access 2003 but also am running this on Access 2000 (not sure if there has been a change to function names)

This is seriously bugging me - can anyone put me out of my misery?

Using Text Files Instaed Of Memo Fields

Mar 27, 2007

I have a large Db Which contains A Couple of Memo fields which due to the amount of data being stored in the Memo fields is starting to show signs of slowing down.One table contains 75,000, with all memo fields above 255.I wont have a problem with adding the extra code but was wondering if there is anything that may cause me a problem or if there's any reason(s) why I shouldn't follow this path.Many ThanksMickP.S. One Option would be to create 1-1 Tables and move the memo fields into the new tables that way I would still have an easy way of serching but it would reduce the size of the main table also none of the memo fields are included in any of the querys used, the problem with speed seems to be adding data I have checked the indexs which seem OK I can't remove any indexes Otherwise it slows down searching ACT.A copy Of the DB Is available here but it is an 11Mb Download should anybody wish to take a look at the tables structure and be able to advise on any imporvments that would be great please remember it's designed to store very large amounts of data. wishesmick

Want Linked Excel Cell 2b Memo Not Text?

Oct 13, 2005

I linked an Excel table and now, in both the table and report, the cell is limiting itself to 255 characters, even though the Excel cell has more. I checked the "data type" and it says "memo" but it keeps truncating to "text".

Where is this limit coming from and can I change the linked table so it won't truncate the text?

thanks :confused:
