Indentation of memo fields - reports vs. modify memo

* at Microsoft all you like. Fox Software invented this one. <sigh>

Foxpro has historically been really stupid at dealing with tabs in printed
output. At least these days it respects the tabs that exist. It didn't

There's really no good way around it other than replacing all your tabs
with spaces.

1. What is the syntax for copy a memo to a database memo field

Can someone please tell me what the syntax is for copying the contents
of a memo field (i.e., memo.lines) to a memo field in a database.
Better yet, I know that


will load the contents of a file into memo.lines.  Is there a way to use
LoadFromFile to load directly into the memo field in the database.

ALL help is appreciated.

Thanks, Ken
