Dear All

1. What  option should we go for if we were to store variable length text in a table that can be either brief description or Logical text like NEGATIVE/POSITIVE or non math NUMERIC or an image file name or PDF  file name.

2. What difference will it make if we store an image file in a binary field or we store the image file name in character field and obtain its image via image control.

3. It is seen that A character field can be edited with Memo editior, where ENTER behaves correctly. For the same field , an ENTRYFIELD stores simply the text whereas Memo editor rearranges this text with inclusion of ENTER key placement. However other formating options do not work. Can we use Character field to store formating codes and other control codes as we do in memo field.

4. For a table in db4, the memo file kept records of only those records whose memo field content were not empty. Is this same  for db7 table

Best Regards
