Access how to subquery longtext data.

Using Access 2013.  I have a query with a subquery that pulls from a longtext column.  When I execute I get the error "Invalid memo, OLE, or Hyperlink Object in subquery 'YC_Comments'."    HOw do I subquery a longtext?  Query sample:

SELECT (SELECT Comments  FROM Programc where c.ID_FK = a.id_fk and c.State_ID_FK = a.State_id_fk ) AS Expr1, *
FROM fulfilment AS a LEFT JOIN Ref AS b ON a.id_fk =;

I'm not sure why this is a subquery at all.  Why would you not just join to Programc using a left join?

Soemthing is missing here:

SELECT Comments  FROM Programc where c.ID_FK = a.id_fk and c.State_ID_FK = a.State_id_fk

Either is Programc a query by itself, or a and c is missing.

Make the subquery run by itself. It will probably hold some invalid entries in field Comments.

A typo error:
"FROM Programc where c.ID_FK = a.id_fk"
===>FROM Program c where c.ID_FK = a.id_fk
