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)

Filter (on the ID) for the record you want & then select the column

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
