I did what you said in the instructions from a table where an application did the import into an "image" type field of a pdf file. I got the project to work but when I try and open an attachment that was exported with acrobat it tells me there is a error opening the file, that it was not decoded properly or was corrupted. The same pdf can be opened by using the application. Is there some trick to exporting the document that was import via an application to get it in a state I can open the file? If I import into the same field using a SQL statement I can then export and open the file with acrobat just fine. I can look inside the exported file with notepad++ and see there is content. I could send a sample of the exported file that cannot be opened if it would help. The application, when right clicking a field on a form says "add OLE object' and allows you to browse to a file to attach or import via the form within the application.
I sure would appreciate some help in getting the files out of the DB. I have been trying for a couple weeks now.
