    Microsoft JET database error 0x80040E57: The field is too small to accept the amount of data you attempted to add.  Try inserting or pasting less data.

      I have column in an excel file that is a text description of an issue and therefore it has a lot of text. I checked all of the columns and none of them exceed 255 character (198 was the most). I can use the describe function to load the data but as soon as I try to drag the field to the viz, I get the above error.

       

      All I want to do is drag the field to level of detail so I can include it in the tool tip. I cannot even do that.
