Hi Experts

Is it possible to add multiple line text strings to a memo field in a SQL 2000 table using vb.net, like my sample data?

7896535, No 2 Widget, 12, Boxes                  Stackable, 60, 321, 90, 876
7896535, No 1 Widget 1000, 10, Euro Pallets         Stackable, 1200, 600, 1000, 1200

There is no such thing as a "memo field" in SQL Server. You can insert carriage return and line feed characters into a TEXT, NTEXT, VARCHAR, CHAR, NVARCHAR or NCHAR column in just the same way as any other character. Just pass the appropriate string as a parameter to your INSERT statement or stored procedure.
