Copy "Long binary Data"

I have a database where i store images (OLE OBJECT) and the field inside the table has the value "Long Binary Data".
I am trying to copy everything to another database and i would like to copy the field which stores the images as Long Binary Data.
Is there a way to do this ?

Thanks in advance

Hi viroz,

A regular copy or append query should work

If you're copying straight from the table then select the whole column (Copy is available)

You looking to do this manually or via code?  If code, then you want to use GetChunk() and AppendChunk().  I've attached a sample of code from the on-line help.

JimD.
Sub AppendChunkX()
 
	Dim dbsNorthwind As Database
	Dim rstEmployees As Recordset
	Dim rstEmployees2 As Recordset
 
	Set dbsNorthwind = OpenDatabase("Northwind.mdb")
 
	' Open two recordsets from the Employees table.
	Set rstEmployees = _
		dbsNorthwind.OpenRecordset("Employees", _
		dbOpenDynaset)
	Set rstEmployees2 = rstEmployees.Clone
 
	' Add a new record to the first Recordset and copy the 
	' data from a record in the second Recordset.
	With rstEmployees
 
.AddNew
		!FirstName = rstEmployees2!FirstName
		!LastName = rstEmployees2!LastName
		CopyLargeField rstEmployees2!Photo, !Photo
		.Update
 
		' Delete new record because this is a demonstration.
		.Bookmark = .LastModified
		.Delete
		.Close
	End With
 
	rstEmployees2.Close
	dbsNorthwind.Close
 
End Sub
 
Function CopyLargeField(fldSource As Field, _
	fldDestination As Field)
 
	' Set size of chunk in bytes.
	Const conChunkSize = 32768
 
Dim lngOffset As Long
	Dim lngTotalSize As Long
	Dim strChunk As String
 
	' Copy the photo from one Recordset to the other in 32K 
	' chunks until the entire field is copied.
	lngTotalSize = fldSource.FieldSize
	Do While lngOffset < lngTotalSize
		strChunk = fldSource.GetChunk(lngOffset, conChunkSize)
		fldDestination.AppendChunk strChunk
		lngOffset = lngOffset + conChunkSize
	Loop
 
End Function
