Hi

I have a folder on my desktop called "MyPics". I have a SQL table called Pics with three columns: ID, Pic, Detail.
What VB.net code would I use to insert all the pics in my folder into the SQL table in my Windows Forms application?

Thanks

Dim Stream As FileStream = New FileStream("<full_path_to_file>", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)
Dim Reader As BinaryReader = New BinaryReader(Stream)
Dim Photo() As Byte = Reader.ReadBytes(Stream.Length)
