You can actually use Jet functions for this. For example, say your memo field is named 'Description' then you would:

SELECT Max(len(Description)) as Total from tTable;

Of course this is still a little ineffiecent, but hey you usually only convert once. ;-)

Wow! That would be very cool. I was kinda throwing that out as a joke, but hey it would be very handy!

I haven't dealt much with OLE objects in Access, but if we come across anything during our conversion, I will let you know.
