Memo field returning Null values

I have an SQL query that pulls data from an ODBC connection to a system DSN I have set up.  Everything works fine until I try to add one more field.  The field is listed in the database schema as a 'text' field with a limit of 8001 char... so I am assuming it is like a Memo field in Access.  When I add that field, all the fields are returned as Null.  I know there is data in that field because I can query it in Crystal and get data, but when I use that same query in VB it comes back Null.  Help!

Have you tried to run the same select or query statement from SQL Query Anayzer?  It should return the same results as did Crystal.  If not, then we need to look at the select statement or the DNS connection you are using.
