Default Inserting text from datagrid into Memo field in c#


I am trying to retrieve some text from a datagrid field edit it and place it into
a Memo field in an access data base.

I am using used:
  string contents = ((TextBox)e.Item.Cells[3]).Text;
and recieve
  System.InvalidCastException: Specified cast is not valid.
I am presumming the castworks fine for a string into a Text field in a database as that line compiles.

Do I need a different data type to insert into a Memo field?

Any help appreciated
