Memo Field in Query

P: 1
I am having problems with a memo field in my queries. At first it was fine, but I tried to do a count on a different field in the query, and now the memo field in all my queries come up in chinese. Has anyone seen this before?

Actual chinese characters or square looking zeros and the like. Pasting directly from a word doc into a memo field can cause problems

Basic rule is. Memo fields shouldn't be used in queries. They don't behave very well.
