Dreaded Multiple Step OLEDB operation error when uploading a file under ASP

I'm getting the Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors message on one of my user when he tries to upload a .doc file. He can upload a PDF or XLS though...
I really have a hard time figuring this one out. THey are really 3-4 users with this problem but they are in a plant far from here.

I'm using IIS6 on a Win2k3 Server with SQL Server 2000 version 8.00.194.
I have MDAC 2.8 on the server. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think that the MDAC on  the client is revelant.

I upload into an image field using the script posted there: http://www.stardeveloper.com/articles/display.html?article=2001042501&page=1
I tested this one and got the same error:http://www.tek-tips.com/gfaqs.cfm/lev2/4/lev3/32/pid/329/fid/1869
