Default Advice Needed

Hi,

Im building a web site using ASP.NET 2.0 and I want to show some random proverbs or poems in a section. At first I thought I cud randamly select an entry from an access database file which would contain all the poems. But later I realized that its not possible to save an entire poem as text in a single field.

So how do you think I shud go about it? Im not lookin for source codes just an effective method.

Thanx

Hi Dsypher,

You can add the entire poem to a single field: Instead of using the Text type, simply use the Memo fields that can hold large amounts of data.

HtH,
