How would I write out a CLOB string in ASP/VB?

In JSP, I would be able to maintain it the same was as a VARCHAR field, but in ASP, it would print jibberish.

I would like to do the following:

sql = "SELECT EntryID, DescClob, NormalString FROM tblTest "
Set rs = conn.Execute(sql)
Do Until rs.EOF
  Response.Write rs("DescClob")
  rs.MoveNext
Loop

If DescClob currently has "Hello", the above code will only write out "????o"

Any ideas?
sql = "SELECT EntryID, DescClob, NormalString FROM tblTest "
Set rs = conn.Execute(sql)
Do Until rs.EOF
  Response.Write rs("DescClob")
  rs.MoveNext
Loop

Hi,

VBScript doesn't support LOB data.  You'll have to cast it to a varchar to get it to work.
sql = "SELECT EntryID, varchar(DescClob) as DescClob, NormalString FROM tblTest "
Set rs = conn.Execute(sql)
Do Until rs.EOF
  Response.Write rs("DescClob")
  rs.MoveNext
Loop
