Basically there are two ways to work with MySQL in VB
. ADO, which is terribly slow and a direct or slightly encapsulated useage of MySQL API. I am using the othere method and it is not so difficult to e.g. upload the whole large images into the databse and than take them out.
Simply make the whole file a variable, transfer it to byte() type and you are almost done. I may dig up some example if this is what you have been asking.
