    Hi friends, :)
    I have a problem, i am using CRecordSet class member function GetFieldValue() to read a field from database ( MS-Access ) but when the type of the field is of type "Text" i am able to read properly, but when i change the field type to "Memo" i am not able to read it, it is giving and exception and even the exception is BLANK..
    can someone tell me a way to read a Memo field from MS-Access database using CRecordSet class or by any other way...

    The sample VBA Code below reads and prints (in the Debug window) the contents of a Memo Field (Notes) from the Employees Table of MS-Access sample database - Northwind.mdb:

    Code:
    Public Function memotest()
    Dim db As Database, rst As Recordset, xyz As Variant
    Set db = CurrentDb
    Set rst = db.OpenRecordset("Employees", dbOpenTable)
    Do While Not rst.EOF
       xyz = rst![Notes]
       Debug.Print xyz
       Debug.Print
       rst.MoveNext
    Loop
    rst.Close
    Set rst = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing
    
    End Function
    
    The memo field value is read into a Variant Type variable (xyz) before it is being printed on Debug Window.
