I am using Infopath 2003 & SQL server. I am getting problem with TextBox limitations. I changed it on text box properties--> Display --> "limit text box to" as 500 and also in SQL Server. But I am still getting this problem. i cant type more than 254.
The form contains the following errors:
Field or group: OB1
Error: Only text strings less than or equal to 254 character(s) allowed
Anyone know about this problem???

Tuesday, December 02, 2008 7:31 AMAs the message says "the limit is 254 characters".Your turn ...

I think, this is a bug in infopath

I realize that this thread is very old. Hopefully this will help someone in the future.
I'm using newer versions of software: SharePoint Designer 2010 and Infopath 2010. If you create your task form field as a "Multiple line of text" field in SPD 2010, and uncheck both Rich text and Enhanced Rich Text, then you will not have the 254 character limitation.

I am using SharePoint 2010 and Word and using Quick parts to display fields from a Sharepoint list into a WORD document. I am using Plain Text but I still get the error.
