I was running an Access database in 2000. Now that I have switched over to 2007 one of my add record queries is changing a memo field into Hyroglyphics. Both the from and two tables have the same format for that specific field.    It does not matter if there is a value in the beginning field or not it still puts in something that looks like this.



Any thoughts?
