Poor DDL in Microsoft access…

Why can’t I use this DDL?

create table Currency
(
    CurCode              Text(3)         not null,
    CurName             Text(35),
    Memo                 Memo,       
constraint PK_CURRENCY primary key (CurCode)
);

The table name currency is not allowed within DDL and also the column name memo is not accepted. When I change those names into CCurrency and Memo into Comment, I can execute the DDL. When I enter into designer mode I can change those names back into Currency and Memo again. Why the difference between DDL and a real hand job?

Also cascade delete and update can not be defined within DDL?

Any work around?
