Uploading Word Docs with asp and storing in SQL server 2000Question
Posted on 2008-10-22
Hi All ,
Im currently working on a website that requires the functionality of being able to accept uploaded CVs from registered users and storing them online so they can attach them to job applications, get headhunted by recruiters,
I am a little confused over how to store these CV's in SQL, My options are this,
1. User copies and Paste their CV into an RTF box and hits submit to save to the database in a text field or blob,
2. User attached their CV and then the CV is saved toi disk
I am trying to find the best solution to accomplish this eg storing the CV word docs in the actual database using BLOBS or storing CVs in a folder and then the next concern I have is how can the recruiters search on specific key words if saved to the DB or the file on disk, guys, this is my only stumling block and I cant seem to get my head around how to achieve this.
I have seen job sites where users can copy and paste their CV into an RTF control and recruiters can search on it. how they do this I have not idea,
Any ideas or examples would be much appreciated ?
