In D5, I create a table programmatically, with one column called SQL_CODE of type ftMemo.  I need to programmatically determine if the column if empty.  I have tried the following, and they do NOT work...

1).  if (Table1.FieldByName('SQL_CODE')).AsString.Lines.Count = 0 ...

2).  if (Table1.FieldByName('SQL_CODE')).Value.Lines.Count = 0 ...

3). if length(Table1.FieldByName('SQL_CODE')).Value) = 0 ...
