I am trying to insert records into an Interbase 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!!

the BLOB fields cannot be inserted as usual fields, but need to be updated by chunks (AppendChunk) and also read by chunks (GetChunk).
You need to read some documentation about this, which is the same for all the databases with BLOB (or similar) data type. See here for ASP/Interbase/Blob sample:

Writing text to a BLOB field would be like

Recordset("fieldname").AppendChunk Fieldvalue

to retrieve,

Chunksize = Recordset("Fieldname).Actualsize
Fieldvalue = Recordset("Fieldname").GetChunk(Chunksize)

hope this helps, AmyWiles
