Subject Re: [IBO] Displaying/Editing a Memo in TIB_GRID
Author Campbell Fuller
Ok, I have solved the first problem - displaying of the Memo in the grid.
For some reason my Blobs were create as SUB TYPE 0 so they were'nt being
recognised as Text/Memo fields. Not sure why but I will change the final
script before conversion.

The inline editing is not an absolute must - I currently use InfoPower and
simply pop-up a memo dialog when the user presses enter on the description
field - they could'nt handle inline memo edits either (Infopower 2000 not
sure about 3000)

I can do the same here as the client is already used to that way of working.
