This is mind boggling to me. I've been at this for 2 weeks. I've put debug steps and I thought I'd fixed it but still get the same error.

This is what I'm doing:
1. I build a letter in code
2. I have it as PDF
3. I want to save it in database
4. I also fax the letter using a 3rd party API. This works

Sometimes, it doesnt happen all the time...i get the error below. I've run out of ideas on what I need to do to get rid of this error...

at System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlFileStream.OpenSqlFileStream(String path, Byte[] transactionContext, FileAccess access, FileOptions options, Int64 allocationSize)     at System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlFileStream..ctor(String path, Byte[] transactionContext, FileAccess access, FileOptions options, Int64 allocationSize)     at System.Data.SqlTypes.SqlFileStream..ctor(String path, Byte[] transactionContext, FileAccess access)     at UserControl_NonMemberFax.SaveLetterDatabase(Byte[] dataLetter, String fax, String patientId, Nullable`1 nonMemberProviderId)     at UserControl_NonMemberFax.btnSubmit_onClick(Object sender, EventArgs e)========The network path was not found

I think it comes from the database when I'm trying to save the doc

My code:

byte[] file1dataLetter = BuildByteLetter();
rowGuidId = SaveLetterDatabase(file1dataLetter, faxnumber, patientId.Text, nonMemberRowId);



 private string SaveLetterDatabase(byte[] dataLetter, string fax,string patientId, int? nonMemberProviderId)

        objSqlParam2.Value = ".pdf";

        objSqlParam3.Value = int.Parse(patientId);

        objSqlParam4.Value = fax.Substring(1,10);

        objSqlParam5.Value = UserSession;

        SqlParameter objSqlParam6 = new SqlParameter("@NonMemberProviderId", SqlDbType.Int);
        objSqlParam6.Value = nonMemberProviderId;

        objSqlCmd = new SqlCommand("SELECT GET_FILESTREAM_TRANSACTION_CONTEXT()", objSqlCon, objSqlTran);
        byte[] objContext = (byte[])objSqlCmd.ExecuteScalar();


        //Writing the byte to db

        SqlFileStream objSqlFileStream = new SqlFileStream(Path, objContext, FileAccess.Write);

        objSqlFileStream.Write(dataLetter, 0, dataLetter.Length);
        objSqlFileStream.Close();
        objSqlTran.Commit();



        return rowGuidId;
    }


    private  byte[] BuildByteLetter()
    {
        //Create Document class object and set its size to letter and give space left, right, Top, Bottom Margin

Can you paste the UserControl_NonMemberFax.btnSubmit_onClick(Object sender, EventArgs e) event code as well?

Here it is. I put debug steps all over that submit code to see if I can capture the error and I think maybe it's coming from the store proc. Any insight would be great

Perform a try/catch on this:
try
            {
                rowGuidId = SaveLetterDatabase(file1dataLetter, faxnumber, patientId.Text, nonMemberRowId);
            }
            catch (Exception e1)
            {
                Response.Write("error in this function...");
            }

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

I know the error is coming from that function because the code never reaches the line of debug after it:  dc.usp_debugfileUpload("Last step: after fax save", UserSession);

I can add the try catch you have as well. Now, if you look at my stored proc...is there a way to keep retrying that stored proc or anyway to keep retrying the save function. It doesnt happen all the time...it happens sometimes so I can keep retrying in the code...if possible

Yes, you can keep retrying it, but you have to code the correct if/else or try/catches and depending on the result, i.e. if (success) { next step } else { function(); }

i wonder why it's happening to begin with. Is it firewall, is it connection, why it happens sometimes and why it doesnt at times...it's weird.

To avoid this and other headaches it is good practice to not store the file in a directory somewhere then instead of storing the actual file in SQL, just store a link / directory path to where the file is stored.  

This has the benefit of not storing files in SQL (save space in your table(s)), it removes having to potentially convert a file to byte[] etc, and also should anybody modify the file for whatever reason you won't have to then update your table.

Isnt using SQL Server 2008's filestream recommanded by Microsoft? With Filestream, the actual file is not stored in SQL...correct?
