Export documents uploaded inside Database

Using:  MS SQL and IIS7

I am importing data from one database to another.

System # 1 has documents uploaded inside the database. I am not familiar on how this is done and how to export them to be actual documents again (Like a word document or an excel file, or PDF)

System # 2 has a path to where the physical documents are stored (The actual word, excel or PDF file).

I need to export all documents from System # 1 to System # 2.

How can I export all those documents to a folder and convert them from what looks like a Blob in the table to actual files ?

Hi,

This can be easily achieved if ext for file is known, using BCP. Are you storing ext somewhere?

Thanks,
Sam

Can you post there the schema from the tables so you can see how those files are stored (which data type are used)?

There is a table with the name of the document in one field and the extension of the document in another. As it turns out the documents are stored on a folder and not the database itself. Ill close this thread, thanks for the help.
