Subject Re: [firebird-tools] Memo notation in IBOConsole
Author Artur Anjos

I think that this 'problem' is related to IBO components. That's the default

How does the IBConsole works on big varchars? I never use them, so I really
don't know. But for memo fields, the only way to see them in IBConsole is
using 'data' directly in the tables: if you work with them in sql window you
can not see blob data.
