I want to insert new values into a table of a MS-Access-"database"

The table looks like
ID => integer Description => memo

And I use the following (test-)code:
#! /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); my $statement = 'INSERT INTO table (ID,description) VALUES(?,?)'; my $sth = $dbh->prepare($statement); for(2..1000){ $sth->execute($_,'x' x $_) or die $dbh->errstr(); }

All values up to a description length of 255 were inserted, but the the entry with a length of 256 lets the script die with the following message:
DBD::ODBC::st execute failed: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver +]Invalid precision value (SQL-HY104)(DBD: _rebind_ph/SQLBindParameter + err=-1)

Access says that a memofield can handle up to ~ 65000 characters...
What can I do to store descriptions with a length greater than 255 characters?
