When you are working using database, is there a way to guess the size you would set for a particular field when you are implementing your table (Paradox) ?? Im using C++ Builder and this is a simple application. It has been creating problems, because now Im not being able to apply the changes Ive made in my table using the Database Desktop, and the fields remains with the same size, always...

Like: The field NAME has width=256 ( I dont know if it is mm or what) and when you set size of field in your table, I think you always put the number of characters. How can I match both, to make the application tidy ??

Is this clear ??

Thank you
