Reading value from recordset removes the data

I have two lines of code:
if isNull(rsJobs("hours")) or rsJobs("hours")="" then hours=" " else hours=rsJobs("hours")

if isNull(rsJobs("howto_apply")) or rsJobs("howto_apply")="" then howto_apply=" " else howto_apply= rsJobs("howto_apply")

I then write out the variables hours and howto_apply.  The bizarre thing is that it works fine for hours, but not for howto_apply.  As soon as I read the data for rsJobs("howto_apply"), I can no longer access that data.  Even if I later try to write out rsJobs("howto_apply") I get nothing.  The only differences I can see is that howto_apply is a memo field, where hours is a text field, and one field name has an underscore in it.  Any ideas?

Let me put it a different way:

do while not rsJobs.eof
  hours=rsJobs("hours")
  howto_apply=rsJobs("howto_apply")
  response.write hours
  response.write "<br>"
  response.write howto_apply
  response.write "<br>-----------<br>"
  rsJobs.moveNext
loop

The above code will print out all of the hours in the recordset just fine.  However, it writes nothing for howto_apply.  If I remove the line:
    howto_apply=rsJobs("howto_apply")
and then later write it out with:
    response.write rsJobs("howto_apply")
then it writes out the data just fine.  Something about assigning data from the recordset to a variable "removes" the data from the recordset...but only for howto_apply, not for hours.

Have you tried to put END IF after each IF

Make sure the memo field is the last field selected in your SQL.

I have answered this question.  I changed the field from a Text field to a varchar with a length of 255.  It didn't like something about the Text data type.  Once I made the change, everything was peachy.  Thank you for all your help.
