Guys, We upload to oracle multiple pdf documents and they are stored in the table as a BLOB this is fine. What I would like to know is it possible to know what the size of the record that has been inserted or how big the pdf file is.

The reason I am asking is I have reason to believe that the automated method that we use to upload to oracle had an off day and has been uploading empty 0kb file to oracle and I want to check if this is true.

It may have only been doing this for a short period of time.

Any ideas
