I use a blob field sub_type 1 in the database and use a TIB_Memo to read and
write to it.
Works just fine for me.

Subject: [IBO] Storing Strings longer than 255 characters

Hi All

I am using FB and IBO with D5.

I want to be able to store very long strings in my database (Much bigger
than 255 characters).
What IBO component do I use for this and what should I define the field as
in FB?

Can I use a blob field...
