HexBinary Data Type

In Visual Studio .NET 2003, I could add a column of type HexBinary to a table in a DataSet. What happened to this data type in Visual Studio 2005? I can't find it. I need this datatype to store aimages in this column.

You can store images as a byte array.

Thanks for the reply. I can't find a field type "byte array"? What should I choose?

What database type are you using?  You need something like a BLOB field/Image data type.

Sorry for the delay. To be honest I completely forgot about this question - please accept my apologies. As for your question, it is not a database - it is a DataSet in Visual Basic 2005...

You are going to have to explain better what you mean, since I don't know what the HexBinary type is.

Well, in VB.NET 2003, when creating a table in an XML Schema, you could add to the table a row of type HexBinary. When I try to do exactly the same think in VB 2005, I can't find that data type when adding a column to a table...

Now, my friend, we are finally getting somewhere ;)  I spend a lot of my time, some times, just getting the right description to understand the problem space :)

If I add an XML schema to my project, add an element, there is hexBinary in the drop-down for element type.

Thanks TLO, the specs for the software changed and I didn't need to do it that way anymore. Thank you very much for your support though.
