I'am try to save some binary data to a blob field, via a
blob stream. The problem is I get a "BLOB not opened error".
Code fragment

  }
   Table1Data is a persistent field of TBlobField Type
  {
 
   DStream := TBlobStream.Create(Form1.Table1Data,
   bmReadWrite);
   While Not EOF(DataFile) DO
     Begin
      BlockRead(DataFile,HeaderRecord,SizeOf(HeaderRecord),
                                                 NumRead);
      EndOfHeader := FilePos(DataFile);
      For i := 0 To HeaderRecord.RecCount -1 DO
       Begin
         BlockRead(DataFile,DataRecord,SizeOf(DataRecord),
                                                 NumRead);
         FieldPos := DStream.Write(DataRecord,
                             SizeOf(DataRecord));
       End;

I have no problems with the other fields in the table

The easiest way is to save the data from your datafile to the blob as a whole:var  fs: TFileStream;begin  fs:=TFileStream.Create(DataFileName,fmRead);  try    Form1.Table1Data.LoadFromStream(fs);  finally    fs.Free;  end;end;If you have to use your own code, I think you have to set table to edit state with the Edit method.

Gabor, I have tried putting the edit mode but it still fails.
The problem with saving the data file as whole is that
the file contains many seperate records with header info.So I
am still open to offers on the orignal code.
Thanks Mike.
