Default displaying a memo in a textarea

I am having a problem displaying data from a memo field in a text area.
I use the following code to populate the textarea which produces mixed results.
replace(rs.Fields.Item("kk_Memo"),Chr(13) & chr(10),"<BR>")

Sometimes it returns part of the text to the text area, but it includes the <br>'s. Other times, the textarea is completely blank.

Anyone have any ideas where I am going wrong?

See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=200124 (Accessing SQL Server Text or Access Memo field returns no data in ASP).

You should be using the .GetChunk() method to extract the data from the Access Memo field.
