I am a bonehead. In stripping down my code for posting here, the problem
suddenly went away. I was building a temporary table and all this time I've
been overlooking the fact that my txtSWDesc1 field in the tmp table was set
to 255. My apologies to everyone. And thanks for trying to help me.

I'm a little curious about this assumption, given that I know I've
successfully used mysql_query() and mysql_fetch_array() on pieces of
data much bigger than that.

echo strlen($myrow[txtSWDesc1]);
produce the output you'd expect?
