I forget to say that the file is in "plain text" format.

Just do this to input the data:

AssignFile(data_in, <Filename>);
Reset(data_in);
Memo1.Lines.Clear;
WHILE NOT(EOF(data_in))
DO
BEGIN
  READLN(data_in, sTemp);
  sTemp := DecodeStr(sTemp);
  Memo1.Lines.Add(sTemp);
END;
CloseFile(data_in);

And then to output the data:

AssignFile(data_out, <Filename>);
Rewrite(data_out);
FOR iCount := 0 TO (memo1.Lines.Count - 1)
DO
BEGIN
  sTemp := Memo1.Lines[iCount];
  sTemp := DecodeStr(sTemp);
  WRITELN(data_out, sTemp);
END;
CloseFile(data_out);

You'll need to create an encode and a decode routine which have a strings passed to them and then either encode or decode them. Writing these depends on how secure you want to make them. If you want help with these then just ask

There is no case what text format you are using.
You should to decode and encode whole memo text, for example as following:
// simple coding
// encoding and saving to file
var str: String;
    i:integer;
begin
     str := Memo1.Text;
     for i:=1 to length(str) do                {for all characters in string }
       str[i] := chr(ord(str[i]) xor 123);   {code character}
     Memo1.Text := str;
     Memo1.Lines.SaveToFile('e:\temp\file.txt');
     Memo1.Clear;
end;

With that coding, decoding procedure will be the same.
