Which control can hold so much text?

Hi,

I'd like to know which control should I use for holding/editing very large (text can be up to megabytes) amount of text? I've tried using textbox, but it splits the data (don't know how much can it store). I get data from a remote database, and i need to edit sometimes... What do you suggest?
