I have a small  asp driven non-profit website that has one section that I set up so the content can be updated via a webform.  It is small maybe using 10 entries tops with 3 or 4 fields per entry. 

I have used SQL server, however, I would like to change to MS Access as it would cut the webhost cost significantly, the reason I haven't used Access it the past is the 225 character limitation. 

Does anyone know of a way to get around the 225 character limitation in Access? 

I am mostly a front end developer who knows enough .asp to set up a very simple database structure and use server side includes.  I can also integrate cold fusion and .jsp code into html, however, I couldn't set up a database structure using these.
