You'll have to do this manually, interacting through each field.

Supposing TableA (source) has the memo fields and TableB has the alpha fields (destination).

You have to do this for each field and record, after calling TableB.Append:

TableB.fieldbyname('AlphaField1').asstring := TableA.fieldbyname('MemoField1').asstring;
