Default All things Blobs and Strings

Hi folks,

Firstly, I am not to sure if this can be done, but i dont see why it cant.

Anyway, I have an XML file which is bening held in a DB as a blob and when it enters the application, the plan is to convert this blob into a string of xml so it can interpreted by the application.

So, I have been looking around the net and havent found anything which indicates this can be done. I dont think it is as simple as cstr() - is it?! :o)

If someone can give me a couple of ideas on this, itd be much appreciated.
