I have a value of type:


I want to save that value into an access file. Then i need to retrieve it later in the same format of bytes. Since i am very new in .Net I couldn't do it myself. What could be the correct field type to hold such a value and how to assign it and retrieve it. Sample code is highly appreciated.

Could you please help?

all of the .net languages are very similar per the link that deepaknet posted a conversion of that might look something like
using System.IO;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.Odbc;
public Int32 SaveDocument(Stream docData, string docFileName)
            Byte Filedata = new Byte(docData.Length-1);
            docData.Read(Filedata, 0, docData.Length);

you can use the odbc to connect to an access db.
