When designing a table - what guide does a programmer use to determine
when to select the field "memo" vs "character" for the table?

the default for memo is 10
character can be up to the dBASE limit.

lets say the table has 20 fields numeric and character

Half of the character fields are more than 20 characters up to 170.
the 10 numeric fields are less than 15 characters.
