    	 '$olinktit','$olinkurl')";
    	Update($strQuery);
    	header("Location:view_news.php");
    ?>

    The looks pretty simple, there seems to be no problem at all. TEXT type allows 65535 characters, so that shouldn't be a problem.
    Try to debug the SQL query by printing it out, and check for any syntactical errors.

    Probably becauase either you did not had ' in the data you were inserting or had the delimiter backslash for it.
