My problem is that when I try to read TBlobStream with CopyFrom property into TFileStream, I see in the file also object decription header from MS Access. Notice: I'm using mdb database and I'm feeding its tables under Access control (maybe it has some importance to the problem). How to receive valid doc or xls files from the Blob field?

  it's easier to use LoadFromFile, and SaveToFile methods, to store and reteitrve the BLob files to and from the database

but you have to add the fields to field editor first, and every thing will work

// to save the file to the db
// to load the file from db

and how us some of ur code to see where's the problem

Best regards
