I'm with David on this one. The question as written is totally ambiguous, and nvarchar or memo are equally valid answers, depending on how you parse the question.

I agree on this. Anyone who gave one of both answers, should be granted the point. Because the point is what it is all about!;-)

There are two "text" type fields in Access: Text and Memo. That's the way I read it.

But, I thought we were'nt supposed to use the SQL Server TEXT data type anyway.

I missed this also because I read the question. It says "What is the equivalent of 'text' data type in MS Access?"

Although the majority are getting it "correct" I also read it to mean the other direction. The question should have been worded something like "What is the MS Access equivalent to the SQL data type 'text'?"


I see I'm not the only one to read the question that way! Another vote for points!

I read it and figured it could be answered both ways so I had a 50 - 50 change to get it right. I chose TEXT data type in Access = NVARCHAR data type in SQL

It should be noted that the reference and notes apply to Unicode and Access 4.0.

Additional references:

and

indicate that text in MS Access 2007, Zero to a maximum of 2.14 gigabytes, equivalent to text in SQL. :-)

Me too. The question contains an ambiguous inner join, I would suggest.
