SQL Filestream syntax

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have this following example



-- Load the image data

SELECT @img = CAST(bulkcolumn AS VARBINARY(MAX))




            SINGLE_BLOB ) AS x


-- Insert the data to the table          

INSERT INTO Items (ItemID, ItemNumber, ItemDescription, ItemImage)

SELECT NEWID(), 'MS1001','Microsoft Mouse', @img

what I want to do is replace
with a variable file name

I tried taking out the apostrophes, and adding @file_location (which I declared) but it doesn't seem to like it.

Do I need to do something like
' " + @file_location + "'

an example would be appreciated. Thanks
