Remove Publisher's 255-character limit on merge field length



How frustrating to fight with Publisher and Access to get a catalog merge
working, and then only at the very end of the process be notified that my
memo field will be truncated to 255 characters. This should be documented in
bright blinking letters in the merge help. Better yet, just make the thing
work as a user will expect, and not limit the length.
