    Hello All,

    I have a table having Blob datatype having more than 1000 records. I use Phpmyadmin for mysql maintenance.

    Phpmyadmin does not display or edit  columns of Blob datatypes? Now i have to edit a blob field how do i do that in phpmyadmin?

    i thought changing columns of 'blob'  datatype to text or char would atleast help me in browsing/editing the data .....but was unable to change datatypes :(

    following was the error when i tried to change blob datatype to char datatype

    (mysql#) alter table electrical change address address text character set utf8;

    ERROR 3 (HY000): Error writing file './property/#sql-b0d_5.frm' (Errcode: 28)

    Plz help me out.

    Thx in advance.
