what about

TBlobField(Dataset.FieldByName('fieldname')).Loadfromfile('imagefilename',ftblob);
//instead of Loadfromfile -> LoadFromStream would be also possible

not sure syntax about the last ftBlob-param

meikl ;-)

Microsoft OleDB provider for oracle doesn't support the BLob fields

you can use Oracle db provider instead of microsoft one, you can download it freely from oracle website

and you can use dbExpress instead of Ado, it's faster than ado, also using native oracle components like DOA or ODAC, will be the best solution
