I am using oracle 8.0 and loading pictures in a dbimage field. For pictures over 32K in size I get "Invalid BLOB length" on some machines. What is the problem?

I think you have to check the parameters in the BDE Administrator and/or ODBC Manager....

The blob entries were missing in the BDE. I added these to the registry and recreated the alias. It seems to work.
