I'm getting the error message 'Field is not a Blob' when opening a TTable object with cached updates set to true, the underlying paradox table contains a Memo field and a TDBMemo points to this field.

Hi wilfred,
cached updates set to true, the underlying paradox table
i´m not sure about what exactly is your error. please send
more comments. Just in case try the following
close your table in the form design and double click the table
componet to see what fields have you added. clean them all and
put them back again. if this not work, delete your datasource and put a new one (just to ensure that those components are uptodate with your table structure.
hope this can help you

Hello hkelmer,

I had already tried what you suggested but it didn't help. I'll rephrase my question.

1. put a TTable, TDataSource and a TDBMemo on a form.
2. Connect TDataSource to TTable.
3. Connect TTable to a paradox table containing a memo field.
4. Connect TDBMemo to TDataSource.
5. Set TTables cached updates to true.
6. Open TTable.

when opening the table I get the error message 'Field is not a Blob'.

I don't think you will like this answer:

BlopFields are NOT supported by cached updates, which i believe have something to do with their nature.
10 rows of 20Mb cached Blops don't fit well into 32Mb RAM.
