Print a "Blob Memo" field from DBMemo

Hi all
I'm using Delph3 and pardox tables.
I have a DBMemo that gets it's data from a "Blob Memo" type field.
The data looks just fine on the form but when i try to get it into any kind of QReport field
 i get nothing !!!  just a blank page !!!
Is there a special Qreport field that i over-looked or another way to do this ????

There is a QRMemo available in the QReport.  But I think there isn't a data-aware version.
there is also a TRichEdit, and for this there is a data aware one! Strange, isn't it?

What you can do if nothing else works is. Put a QRMemo on the band. In the BeforePrint event of the band, assign the data of the Blob memo field to the QRMemo.

Now it should be printed!

TNQ......Your answer was right on the mony !!!!!
Only one thing :
You can't assign a Blob Memo field into a QRMemo so what i did was set the
Blob memo inti a String variant and then used the SetText property of the QRMemo.
