Would someone please give me the necessary code so that I can add text on a new line of a DBMemo field.  The code I'm using now (that doesn't work) is below.  I can add text to the first line, but I can't add new text to new lines.  I'm using D3.

    if dbMemo.Text = ''
    then dbMemo.Text := outLine + ' '+ resultTime  // the field is empty.
    else dbMemo.Text := dbMemo.Text + outLine + ' '+ resultTime;

Try to use dbMemo.Lines.Add('String Goes here');
To reset the memo, use dbMemo.Lines.Clear;
