Hi,<BR><BR>I have a ASP page where I wish to allow the editing of a memo field (among others). I want to display the results from the recordset in a TextArea field.<BR><BR><TD><TEXTAREA NAME="JrnlComments" Rows=10 Cols=50><BR><%=f_JrnlComments%> 0;/TEXTAREA><BR><BR>This code will display the results but with a row and a half of garbage characters before the contents of the field. I have used replace to get rid of tabs and spaces but it doesn't make a difference. <BR><BR>Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.<BR><BR>Happy New Year!!
