Hi Silvia: From this posting I'm not sure which DB scheme you are using. There are many different approaches to use, most Databases have field descriptions which contain sizes: example: in Mysql char(30) One could query the database description, then parse the field/column description. So, first tell us what DB interface you're using. HTH tim
