I have a VB application  that uses getchunk/appendchunk methods to update BLOB columns stored in a SQL Server database.  However, I need to do perform the exact same functionality using DB2 For Windows.  
Neither IBM ODBC Driver nor the Microsoft OLE DB Driver supports handling of BLOB data between VB and DB2.  

Could you please tell me how I can accomplish this ?
Thank You.

I am not sure about your case but what i am using for that is OLE provider not odbc connection. As you said ODBC connections are preety weak in dealing with blob
This is my connection string for dealing with blob field in Oracle and it works
Con.ConnectionString="Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1;Password=XX;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=XXXXX;Data Source=XXXX"
You need to find a right OLE provider for DB2.
