[5.2] VB Form field cutting off in Crystal 8.5

We have a Character VB Form field in the OrderHed table set to 'any
character', length '999'. Vantage allows us to go in and type in this many
characters in the field. This field is also on our Sales order
acknowledgement form in crystal but Crystal is cutting it off (only
displaying) 256 characters. Does anyone know why it would do this or how I
can fix it?
