Invalid BLOB handle in record buffer - error

I have a problem with my code. I need to extract the text from the blob field of an Access database table.
I use a stringgrid (kStringGrid) where I want to push all the records of the table initial Access table. This table has a BLOB field which I cannot view unles I use a DBMemo. What I'm trying to do is take each record from the first to the last and save the fields I'm interested in to the stringgrid. I built a procedure to do that.
So my code  looks like this:


procedure upd_ann;
var
 data,s,p,u,stare:string;
 size:string;
begin
with form1 do
 begin
        q1.Active:=false;
        q1.Active:=true;
        q1.FindLast;
        u:=DBGrid1.Fields[0].AsString;
        q1.FindFirst;
        p:=DBGrid1.Fields[0].AsString;
        Memo3.Lines:=DBMemo1.Lines;
        If u<>p then
        repeat
                q1.FindNext;
                p:=DBGrid1.Fields[0].AsString; //field 1 (string)
                s:=Memo3.Lines.Strings[1];     //                                   FIELD 2 (comment) THE BLOB I NEED
                data:=DateTimeToStr(DBGrid1.Fields[2].AsDateTime);
                kStringgrid2.AddRow;
                kStringgrid2.Cells[1,kStringgrid2.Row]:=p;
                kStringgrid2.Cells[2,kStringgrid2.Row]:=s;
                kStringgrid2.Cells[5,kStringgrid2.Row]:=data;
        until u=p;
 end;


end;



Can anyone tell me what may be wrong about this. I read a few lines about this error but I could not solve my problem though. They wer about BLOB CACHE size... .
I'm sure I'm not the first that encounters this problem nor this error.
Any good code is welcome.

Yes... I forgot to mention that I use DBGrid1 to retrieve the dataset containing the blob field, and on the first column of the DBGrid there's the primary key. And then I use the DBMemo to view (and get) the BLOB.

Come on guys... there must be someone that encountererd this kind of situation before, I can't be the first.

Invalid blob handle appears when the BDE has not enought cache.
Use BDE Administrator and insert 400 to Blob Size and 1000 to Blob Cache.
We have this problem for doing repports with lots of blob and it's the solution...the problem is the BDE.

If I remember correctly, verify if the query component have RequestLive=False and if you can put Unidirectional=True (and read all the rows for the grid).
A blob can't be retreived by assignation and can't be assign with = (you can't use Field[2].AsBlob= something or retreive something with variable=FIelds[2].AsBlob). You have to use a stream or another thing to do that.

Right now I'm installing Win 2003 Server on my comp and I have to reinstall Delphi and all the components and just after that I will be able to try your solution. It will probabely take a day or 2 to backup my files and all but as soon as I finish I promise you that I will try your solution. Maybe it will work.

Anyways... Happy Easter, and thank you for trying to answer my question , seems like noone else bothered.

lbellego - I did not solve my problem but thanks for the interest in my problem though. Sorry for keeping you so long before giving you the points. I will try a workaround with my problem somehow.
Thanks anyway, and the points are yours for trying.
