The problem is not inserting it through the db but converting the file to bytes in vb so as to use the memorystream to get the bytes and them save it to the db.
Dim ms as memorystream
dim arr() as bytes = ms.GetBuffer
I donât follow. Files are stored in bytes. It seems you would be able to just read the file in binary format, and be done with it. I suppose if you want an intermediate storage, you could create an array of bytes, and read it into that.
Plus Rajesh seems to be indicating that SQL actully has an intrinsic column type designed to hold a file.
