Default Memo Fields with Windows Forms in C#

Hello all,

I'm writing a single-user Windows Forms app with Access as a database back end, reading and writing from XML files. I've loaded all my tables with the exception of tables containing memo fields - for some reason, I can't populate them with C# code. The memos are at the end of the table (I've seen that error report), and the code goes something like this:

        private void LoadExceptionDays(XmlNode node)
            DataRow insertRow;
            if (conn == null) return;
            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("SELECT calendarID, exceptionDay, isShootDay, note FROM calendarExceptionDays", conn);
            DataSet temp = new DataSet();
            if (adapter != null) adapter.Dispose();
            adapter = new OleDbDataAdapter();
            adapter.SelectCommand = cmd;
            OleDbCommandBuilder custCB = new OleDbCommandBuilder(adapter);
            DataTable tbl = temp.Tables[0];
            foreach (XmlNode n in node.ChildNodes)
                insertRow = tbl.NewRow();
                insertRow["calendarID"] = n["calendarID"].InnerText;
                insertRow["exceptionDay"] = n["exceptionDay"].InnerText;
                insertRow["isShootDay"] = n["isShootDate"].InnerText;
                // memo field below
                insertRow["note"] = n["note"].InnerText;
            catch (Exception ex)
                System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString() );

When I run the above code, I get a "syntax error in INSERT INTO statement" when adapter.Update() is called. Commenting the memo field eliminates the error. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
