The memory exception would have been thrown by the CString logic, and it does that when it can't allocate enough memory.  I'd say that the actual error occurs when CRecordset calls
   CString::GetBufferSetLength(nLen)
where nLen is the actual size of the data in the field as determined (ultimately) by a call to
    ::SQLDescribeCol()

Alas, I've never seen this fail.  It might fail if your computer was really short of memory and the ntext field was really large.  Have you detected any pattern to the failure?  Does it always fail if the field length is particularly large?

In Query Analyzer, you can use
  SELECT DATALENGTH( MyColumnName) FROM MyTable WHERE...
to find out how large the field is, in characters.

Note that there could be a problem if your program has not been built as a UNICODE project (or if not linked with the correct (UNICODE) MFC DLL).  In that case, calculations would be wrong by a factor of 2.

If you can't solve this, you could try using a different version of the GetFieldValue() funtion... the one that specifies to place the data into a CDbVariant data type.  There is an example of that usage here (near the bottom)

  CRecordset::GetFieldValue  
   http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5f8k59f9(VS.80).aspx

After the data is obtained, you can use
   varValue.m_pstringW  
to obtain the UNICODE string text.
