I'm building an ASP.NET application that will allow users to upload files into an SQL Service IMAGE field.  Users can then download files that they find through searches, etc.

I want to be able to read the IMAGE data from the database table and if the file is a text file, I want to do the following.

1) Read the file data out of the IMAGE field and export it do a text file on the web server.
2) Then stream in the text file that is exported and show it in a Text Field.

I've got enough sample code to do part 2), but I'm stuck on part one.  How can I do this?
