how about:

pos(myString,table1Memo);

or

pos(lowerCase(myString),lowerCase(table1Memo.text));

Pos(MyString, Table1Memo) do not work.
Missing a "not" in the question, sorry.

Hello

  Add findDialog to ur form and write this code in the OnFind event

procedure TForm1.FindDialog1Find(Sender: TObject);
var Buffer, Pos, tPointer : PChar;
    BuffLength            : Word;
begin
   With Sender as TFindDialog do
   begin
      GetMem(tPointer, Length(FindText) + 1);
      StrPCopy(tPointer, FindText);
      BuffLength:= Memo1.GetTextLen + 1;
      GetMem(Buffer,BuffLength);
      Memo1.GetTextBuf(Buffer,BuffLength);
      Pos:= Buffer + Memo1.SelStart + Memo1.SelLength;
      Pos:= StrPos(Pos, tPointer);
      if Pos = NIL then MessageBeep(0)
      else
      begin
         Memo1.SelStart:= Pos - Buffer;
         Memo1.SelLength:= Length(FindText);
      end;
      FreeMem(tPointer, Length(FindText) + 1);
      FreeMem(Buffer,BuffLength);
      Memo1.SetFocus; //This line highlight the found text
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  FindDialog1.Execute;
end;

Best regards

I should be more specific the first time :)

I have a paradox table with a memo.  I need to find records containing a certain text in the memo.
I'm using a OnFilterRecord to do that.

Procedure TDataModule1.Table1FilterRecord(DataSet: TDataSet; var Accept: Boolean);
Begin
  Accept := Pos('Hello world', Table1.Memo.Text) ;
End ;

But it do not work.  I have an error message telling the memo can not be access in a filter.
How can I do that ???

Thank you.

How about putting a (hidden, visible := false) TDBRichEdit on a form, iterate through each DB record
calling DBRichEdit1.findText(some_string_to_search_for) until you hit it.
