What version of Access?
Confirm that Access is interpreting the target field as MEMO, (either look at the linked table in design
mode, or use Tools->Analyze->Documenter).
For the query, determine the "type" of the parameter - Query menu->Parameters. Be sure you are using type
By the way, 3271 is a Jet error -- Invalid property value.
