I've read the FAQ and i unchecked Text as LongVarChar.

i've checked the option and everything works now. THANKS !!!
i suggest you'd better change the FAQ.

the FAQ is wrong in this case.

Data Type Options: 
Uncheck Text as LongVarchar 
Uncheck Unknowns as LongVarchar 

i think it would help a lot of borland if this was fixed :)
