How do I write to a memo field in MS Access?

I am reading a series of strings from a file and then inserting them into an MS Access table. Occasionally when the string is too large I get a java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]String data, right truncated (null).
The field in the table is of type memo and should be large enough to accomodate the size of the strings.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

some times drivers have limits to the size of the string that you can use for querying/updating. If the value is too large, usually you'll have to stream the values in. I got this code to work using MSAccess ( is probably far from efficient, and there may be a better way ):

hope it works for you,
Jamie
