I have a field in a MySQL table that is set to text. When I run a select on the table, the data in this field shows up as (MEMO) where the field is not null and (memo) where the field is null. I access the data with a VB6 application, and when I retrieve the data with the application, all the data is fine. Does anyone know why? How can I see the data in the table when I access it from the database instead of returning (MEMO) I would like to see what is actually there. Thanks.
