Memo feilds, MS Access, ODBC and PostgreSQL

I cannot get MS Access 97 to recognize any memo field in a linked table
of type text with more than 255 characters.  MS access thinks the fields
are memo, and I have tried many different combinations. All attempts to
read the fields fail with ODBC -- call failed.  Family Data is a table
in the database, and notes it the text (memo) field with more than 255
characters (inc new lines) in it.

This database (on PostgreSQL 6.5.3 running under a modified Mandrake 6.0
and kernel 2.2.14pre12) was imported with a utility I have written to
transfer MS access databases into interfaces to the postgreSQL back end
(using connections and passing SQL for execution).  I will publish this
if anybody is interested.
