ASP Form - Memo field

I have an ASP form connecting to an MS Access DB. I have one field which is a MEMO field in the Access DB. I want the user to have the option to update / modify the data. All my text input fields work fine. The memo field will not display the data stored data. I also want the memo field to wrap as users are typing.

	<textarea name="FY15Comments" rows="5" cols="60" value="<%=FY15Comments%>">  </textarea>

Is this control bound to the table?  Perhaps just make it free form (don't know the correct term for ASP) and use SQL to update that field when done.  

Memo fields are stored as pointers in Access tables, so not in the table with the "normal" fields.

I'm not sure what you are recommending.
If I have just a text field, this code works.

                  <input name="FY15SearchesPI" size="10" value="<%=FY15SearchesPI%>">

and displays the stored data. I want to do the same with the MEMO field.
