I don't know VFP and, in the days before it became VFP, blobs were not
supported. I guess time has marched on....but you'd be looking to a)
display it in a control that can represent multi-line data (for the
interface) and b) pass it back to the update or insert statement as a
blob. I guess if VFP doesn't have this capability, you'll be googling the
web to find something suitable out there.

If you're using the ODBC driver, ask there for advice.
