I am getting an error 'Must declare the scalar variable @Blob" when I run the following code VB >net 2005 against MS SQL Server 2008.  This worked fine when run against a MS Access database.

Can someone tell me how to fix the problem?

Thanks
Friend Sub SendToBLOBNew(ByRef dbConnection As System.Data.IDbConnection, _

                             ByRef lVersionNo As Long, _

                             ByRef strFile As String, _

Trust the message, @Blob is not defined. Your problem seems to be here:
 cmd.CommandText = _
        "INSERT INTO tbl_Object(VersionId,Component,Blob) VALUES (" + CStr(lVersionNo) + "," + _
                                                                  "'" & strFile & "'," + _
                                                                  "@BLOB)"

 Try defining the blob variable, and then change the insert statement. (Because blob will be a string, then you need to make sure you have in between quotes.

DIM blob as string

cmd.CommandText = _
        "INSERT INTO tbl_Object(VersionId,Component,Blob) VALUES (" + CStr(lVersionNo) + "," + _
                                                                  "'" & strFile & "'," + "''" + blob+ "'')"

with oledb, you don't write @var in the sql:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.oledb.oledbparameter.aspx
  cmd.CommandText = _
        "INSERT INTO tbl_Object(VersionId,Component,Blob) VALUES (" + CStr(lVersionNo) + "," + _
                                                                  "'" & strFile & "', ? )"
 
        cmd.Connection = dbConnection
