  • Maybe an example will help: say I have a text field with a length of 255. I then attempt to paste 300 chars into it. Bang! This error message will appear.

  • You'll either need to change the field size or data type.

    For more precise help your need to provide a screenshot of your current table structure and a copy of the value you are trying to enter that triggers the error.
