Access MEMO is actually closer to LONGTEXT than to BLOB.

Blob stands for Binary Large OBject.

Although you can use BLOB, depending on what you are inserting, it is
recommended that you use LONGTEXT for your memo field.

Subject: Does BLOB=Memo?

I'm a bit new to MySQL.  I need to create a Memo field (a field that could
contain a lot of information).  I know that in some languages, BLOB is a
Memo field.  Is that the case with MySQL?  If so, are there some parameters
that I need to use here, or should I use another type to represent my Memo
field?

Thanks,
Jesse
