Garbage in Memo Fields - Delphi and M$ Access and ODBC


I am using Delphi 5 to access a Microsoft Access database - using ODBC.  The
one problem I run into is that the Memo fields were I store rich text is
showing up in some records (not all) as part of it being garbage characters.
(various accented characters and all sorts of stuff)

Does anyone know what is causing this?  If so - how to fix it ?
