Just to add that in SQL 2005, it's preferred to use VARBINARY(MAX) over IMAGE
as per:

Hi, when I add the insert record server behavior it gives me the following options for a text or numeric.  What do I use?  I am currently using the Varbinary in the SQL database image data type and text for the insert record behavior but I get this error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e07'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Operand type clash: text is incompatible with varbinary

/sqlinserttest.asp, line 59

Hi, maybe I'm not being clear enough.  All I am trying to do it make a dreamweaver insert record form wiht a filefield for an image, upload the image and store the location in a MS SQL database so I can then place it on pages and use it where I want.  I am using Pure ASP upload from DMXzone.com Dreamweaver CS3, ASP and MS SQL 2000.  I tried doing this the same why I aways do with an Access database but my normal method won't work on a SQL database so can anyone help me with this?  I would think this is a very basic thing for anyone that uses SQL Server on a regular basis?
