Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you using Access 97 or earlier?

This error occurs if one of the fields in the record has a default value that exceeds that field’s FieldSize property setting.

Increase the field’s FieldSize property setting to be equal to or larger than the field’s default value. Or, change the field’s default value so that it does not exceed the field’s FieldSize property setting.
