I had a field named Memo that was a "character" type field. I edited the field type to make it a "memo" field type. Everything changed correctly, but I have since discovered that the "memo" type does not allow me to sort in that column in the list view. I have created a new field named Memo1 of a character type and would like to move the contents of Memo to Memo1, but can not do that in the edit/replace fields screen as I can not select the Memo field from the available fields. I also can not select the text to copy/paste from the Memo field in list view. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, memo fields are not an available option for the replace/copy/swap functions. And it does not look like they are sortable either. You however, can copy/cut and paste the contents of a memo from the list view by clicking the box in the top left to go into Edit Mode.
