Optimizing Short Text Field Sizes. Is Field Length that Important?
Just how important is it to make sure you specify the correct field size for a Short Text field in your Microsoft Access databases? In this video, we'll take a close look.
Joel from Reno NV (a Learning Connection Member) asks, "In one of the earlier Beginner lessons you showed how to set field sizes to reduce the size of the database. Like reducing the first name field to 20 from 255, etc. In one of the later lessons, I think you said it was no longer necessary to do that - that now Access keeps the database size down without reducing the field sizes. But I wasn't sure and thought I should double check with you before I start creating my database."
