lost caracter when inserting TEXT in SQLserver 6.0

1)    When I insert a memo.textfrom delphi 2.0 into TEXT type of SQL
server 6.0, I lost the two first characters,
I use a request and table control with delphi 2.0 (32 bits).

2) When I want to update the type TEXT, the request I made by Delphi
control isn't work, the record
isn't upgraded. What happended ?

3) I develop a french application, I lose accented characters when I
insert information into the databases.
