    Microsoft JET database error 0x80004005: The size of a field is too long

    giles.somers

      I've separated this out from another question, but after a series of errors with queries and extracts, I then tried to add global context filters to make the data more efficient

      But it comes up with this:

       

      'Microsoft JET database error 0x80004005: The size of a field is too long.

      Unable to create local query context'

       

      Any ideas what has caused this please?

      IF I have cells with more than 255 characters in, then should they not just be truncated rather than cause a crippling error?

       

      I don't see why the error just came up with the use of filters and wasn't before??
