hi -- i'm using vs 2010 and c#. i have a byte array i want to store in a data column in a table. i'm looking for how to format and program this data type. I also want to save and retrielve the data set to an xml file. i have everything working except for the byte array (i just started working with it, before i stored the array as a string and converted back and forth.) i didn't see any example code in the ms help. i also would like to know how the xml value is stored -- space deliminted, comma delimented, etc between array values.
