i want to save a jpeg file to a BLOB column in SQl Server

my code is here

 if opendialog1.execute then

 dbimage1.picture.loadfromfile(opendialog1.FileName);

but the problem is it can only recognize the bmp file,and show the message as "unknown jpeg file."

1. Loading files into Blob fields:

procedure TForm1.btLoadClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  begin
   try
    Table1.Append;
         (*** Save file name in a string field called "File" ***)
    Table1.FieldByName('File').AsString:=
      ExtractFileName(OpenDialog1.FileName);

         (*** Load file contents into Blob field ***)
    TBlobField(Table1.FieldByName('Data')).LoadFromFile(OpenDialog1.FileName);

    Table1.Post;
   except
     on E: Exception do
       Table1.Cancel;
   end; // try

  end;  // if OpenDialog
end;


2. Extracting files from Blob fields:

Next example illustrates how to read file from a Blob field:

- Add ShellApi in Uses clause:

procedure TForm1.btOpenClick(Sender: TObject);
var
  FileName: string;
begin
  FileName:= Table1.FieldByName('File').AsString;

  (*** Save Blob field contents into disk ***)
  TBlobField(Table1.FieldByName('Data')).SaveToFile(FileName);

  (*** Open the file ***)
  ShellExecute(handle, 'open',
    PChar(FileName), nil, nil, sw_Normal);
end;

To assist you in your cleanup, I'm providing the following guidelines:

1.  Stay active in your questions and provide feedback whenever possible. Likewise, when feedback has not been provided by the experts, commenting again makes them receive an email notification, and they may provide you with further information. Experts have no other method of searching for questions in which they have commented, except manually.

2.  Award points by hitting the Accept Comment As Answer button located above and to the left of that expert's comment.

3.  When grading, be sure to read:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/cmtyQuestAnswer.jsp#3
to ensure that you understand the grading system here at EE. If you grade less than an A, you must explain why.

4.  Questions that were not helpful to you should be PAQ'd (stored in the database for their valuable content?even if not valuable to you) or deleted. To PAQ or delete a question, you must first post your intent in that question to make the experts aware. Then, if no experts object after three full days, you can post a zero-point question at community support to request deletion or PAQ. Please include the link(s) to the question(s).
CS:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt
At that point, a moderator can refund your points and PAQ or delete the question for you. The delete button does not work.

5.  If you fail to respond to this cleanup request, I must report you to the Community Support Administrator for further action.

Our intent is to get the questions cleaned up, and not to embarrass or shame anyone. If you have any questions or need further assistance at all, feel free to ask me in this question or post a zero-point question at CS. We are very happy to help you in this task!


thanks!
