 Formatted memo field paradox 4.5 + delphi 5
I have a paradox 4.5 database with formatted memo fields.
How can I display/edit these fields with Delphi 5
I have tried it with the TDBRichEdit control but that does not work
What I am doing wrong?
or what to do?

Formatted memos are a proprietary format for data specific to Paradox.
Neither Delphi nor the BDE support this data format. In Paradox, the BDE
would read the data as raw binary data and pass that on to Paradox. The
mechanism for translating the raw data into something usable was in Paradox
itself.

You might be able to find a third-party component capable of displaying or
editing data from these fields, but none of the stock Delphi components
will do it. Or Corel, the current owners of Paradox, might have information
on this data format that you can use to make your own translation routine.
