Using Delphi 3, and given:

1 TMemo
1 TTable

and where the Table1 contains a MEMO record (Paradox and of Blob type) how do I get the contents/lines of a TMemo component into the 'MEMO' memo field for a record?

This obviously does not work:

Table1.FieldByName('MEMO').AsMemo := Memo1.Lines;

What would work?

Try this:

Table1.FieldbyName('MEMO').asstring := Memo1.lines.text;

However, next/new question...

How does one VIEW the contents of the Memo/blob field once it is in the Table/Record?

A little sheet of paper icon appears in the table's field cell currently.  How do I view that?

You can try double-clicking it, but I don't think that's gonna work (it works in Database Explorer).

You need a TDBMemo in order to view the contents of a memo field, or the kind of DB component that suits the kind of data in the blob field (like OLE objects, graphics, audio, AVIs, etc).
