DBMemo >240 Bytes in paradox

   I am trying to write a delphi 1.0 app. that saves  small document (1
- 10K) to a paradox database memo field.  When  I try to load (loadfile
method) a document > 240 bytes, I recieve an error at the post method
saying the disk is full trying to write to the <database>.mb file.  What
am I missing...  Any help and/or sample code would be apprieciated
