Hi Guys

We are importing a table straight from MS access to SQL table using SSIS and a few of the columns in Access are memo type (multi-line), when we import into SQL these lines are appearing with HTML DIV tags around them.

During the import process we have tried changing the data type to most of the available options like ntext, nvarchar, varchar including max and still no luck.

Would anyone have any ways to solve this without significant changes to the design?

What's the name of the Column in Access?

Do this in Access

SELECT MAX(LEN(memoCol)) FROM table

How big is that?
