    Question Field is too small

    I have a C# (VS 2008) front-end application interfacing with an MS Access (2007) db. The db is accessed by two or three users over the network with no problems. Recently one of the users running Windows 8 has been unable to insert or update records. She gets an error message -- "The field is too small to accept the amount of data you attempted to add. Try inserting or pasting less data."

    Another user running Windows 7 does not have this problem.

    Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Pretty hard to guess. Unless it's on EVERY field she tries to enter...
    Please explain, and provide code

    Problem appears to have been related to the specific date format used on each machine. Problem resolved. Thanks for your interest.
