memo field

A data field that holds a variable amount of text. The text may be stored in a companion file, but it is treated as if it were part of the data record. For example, in the dBASE command list name, biography, name is in the data file (DBF file) and biography could be a memo field in the text file (DBT file). See CLOB.
