D1-Tfield not in grid but on form-Possible

I've got a dbgrid on my form. Have a memo field in the table in question.
due to the number of fields, I can't fit the memo field in the grid. so I
drop a DBMemo component on my form, create a Tfield pointing to the memo
field and connect the datafield. When I do this, the grid appends the Memo
field into the fields included in in it, bringing up the horizontal
scrollbar, screwing up my form.
     How do I deal with this? Can I set the fields of the dbgrid at
instantiation and manually assign the DBmemo field as well? Or is there a
better way to do this that I'm overlooking?

Any help appreciated
