Function to read an external file into a memo field
MEMOREAD(<filename>, [<memofield>, [<expL>]]
The MEMOREAD() function reads an external text file <filename> into a character string. If the optional <memofield> is specified then the contents of the text file are read into the MEMO field. The MEMOREAD() function returns .T. if the operation was successful. There is no limit to the size of the text file to be read into the memo field.
Setting <expL> to a value of TRUE will cause return characters to be retained during the MEMOREAD() even if MEMOFORMAT is ON. Setting the <expL1> value to .F. will format the memo during the MEMOREAD() operation, stripping carriage return characters during input. The default setting for the <expL> parameter is .F..
