What is the type in SQL?

What are you storing in this field?

SQL 2005 has some new types that are better for blobs than image and memo.

use [ITWT]
insert into part_binary (PART_ID, TYPE, BITS, BITS_LENGTH)

SELECT PART_ID, TYPE, cast(cast(BITS as varchar (8000)) as image), len(cast(BITS as varchar (8000)))



 'Data Source="g:\visual\itw\itw.mdb";

 User ID=Admin;Password='
