If you are accessing the foxpro data through odbc you will not be able to convert more than 254 characters from a memo field.  I recommend that you look at using ADO and the getChuck funtion to access the data.

Here is a link to an MS KB entry that provides an example of writing data to memo fields through ADO that illustrates an approach you may find helpful - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q208208/
