Mysql varchar could be transformed to memo in Ms Access

Mysql varchar could be transformed to memo in Ms Access when Mysql table is used as linked table inside Access, but I want to prevent this from happening. Mainly because I can not join tables with memo field.

As I observed, long Mysql varchar field is transformed to memo field, but short one stays as text field. The maximum length of varchar is 85 which allows varchar stays as text field in Access.

This limitation is quite touch, isn’t it?
