Subject:Blob or Text field
View as plain text  

I have several Mysql databases that hold information for forms and tests
- and I have been using the blob field definition for users entering
text.  Everything seems to be working great- although when I bring my
data into Word's Access the blob fields are not initially there, but
appear after I change a setting for that field to memo.  Should I think
about changing these fields to text fields.  What is the best field type
to use for collecting text in this situation and why?

Thanks in advance,
