Appends a text file to a memo field.

Syntax

APPEND MEMO <memo field> FROM <filename>
[OVERWRITE]

<memo field>

The memo field to append to.

FROM <filename>

The text file to append. The default extension is .TXT.

OVERWRITE

Erases the contents of the current record memo field before copying the contents of <filename>.

Description

Use the APPEND MEMO command to insert the contents of a text file into a memo field. You may use an alias name and the alias operator (that is, alias->memofield) to specify a memo field in the current record of any open table.

APPEND MEMO is identical to REPLACE MEMO, except that APPEND MEMO defaults to appending the file to the current contents of the memo field and has the option of overwriting, while REPLACE MEMO is the opposite.

While memo fields may contain types of information other than text, binary fields are recommended for storing images, sound, and other user-defined binary type information. Use OLE fields for linking to OLE documents from other Windows applications.

OODML

Use the Field objectís replaceFromFile(†) method.
