You need to set DBIs LongReadLen() attribute.
Have a read a the the documentation.
Try something like:

!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use DBI; my $dbh = DBI->connect('DBI:ODBC:driver=Microsoft Access-Treiber (*.md +b);dbq=db1.mdb',user,pass); $dbh->{'LongReadLen'} = 6000; # For have a maximum of 6000 chars... #... and so on....

Hope this helps,

    The LongReadLen attribute is not for inserting values (from documentation: The LongReadLen attribute only relates to fetching and reading long values; it is not involved in inserting or updating them.)

      Thanks for pointing out my brain burp of the day.
