I am trying to insert records into a table using the SQL syntax: INSERT INTO TABLE(Field list) VALUES(Value list). My code is choking on the BLOB field. I get the error:

SQLState: HY000
Native Error Code: 335544334
conversion error from string "BLOB"

Please help!!

You can't insert a blob field directly in the insert.
you need to use:

insert into (field1, field2, blobfield)
values ('TEST', 135, :blobparam)

Then you can assign a value to that parameter.

If you need further explanations post a message and I could send you a piece of code.

This is what I currently have...how should I alter it?

Descript=request.form("prodDesc")

SQL = "INSERT INTO PRODUCTS (PROD_SPECIAL,PROD_DESCRIPT) VALUES (" & NewID & "," & Descript & "')"
Set rs = conn.Execute(SQL)

I answered on 6/7 and no one responded again until today (6/20)...I don't understand what the problem is-I've responded to every comment. If the question hasn't been answered, what am I supposed to do?
-PS-The subtype is text.

Try changing the subtype to Binary as it works much better that way with strings.

I use Delphi and or C++ and neither use Appendchunk method, so for VB?

Here is DLL for one of the Blob I use:

ORIGOBLIGOR    BLOB SUB_TYPE 0 SEGMENT SIZE 2000,

I can then:
A) Create a text file and write it directly to Blob
B) Use a data aware memo component and tie it directly to Blob
C) Pull contents of blob out to a stringlist or array of strings, modify, drop back.

Does VB have a data aware memo component?

(I haven't looked at VB since about version 2 when I decided I didn't like it)

Hi,

I am looking out for a piece of code which will insert a text file into a table as a LongBlob datatype?
