Yes, that's correct.

I was using linked tables to Access and when my psql db ended up with
fields longer than 255 it gave me error on that line. 

Also, prior to converting my Access db using pgAdmin it wouldn't work
so I had to enter my Access db and cut down on fields exceeding 255.

Regards,

Aage
