I seem to be getting very annoying behaviour from SQL Server and was wondering what the correct method should be...I want to store some binary data in the database and I want to use a stored procedure. I also want to pass some XML to the stored procedure where this XML contains the binary data. I will then use OPENXML to grab the binary data and stick in the table. In order to ensure the safe transmission of the binary through XML I Base64 encode it. Ok so far. The problem is that although OPENXML is supposed to assume that anything marked as Image/Binary will be Base64 encoded it then proceeds to Base64 encode it again and put that result into the database! So what am I missing, am I supposed use a CDATA section or something rather than Base64 encode my XML?
Hi When images are uploaded and stored directly into a sql database as binary data (eg in the club starter kit) how can those images be accessed and displayed. When I open the images table in VWD and select display data, the cells holding the image data hold a <binary data> tag. What I want to be able to do is get at that data, or actually get at the image so that it is displayed. My reason is this, at the moment the only way to access the images in the sql database after they have been uploaded is to log into the website and view them as an administrator of the site. It would be much simpler if I could access the database directly and view the contents of the images table. Any ideas? Thanks

I have a table with 10 rows with a varbinary column
I wish to concatenate all the binary column into a single binary column and then write that to another table within the database. This application splits a binary file (Word or PDF document) into multiple segments (this is Column2 as below)
I have a table called 'Articles' whose columns are articleId (int), authorName (varchar) and article (binary). The primary key is articleId. I tried using DTS wizard available in Enterprise Manager 2000, to import the data from this table into a remote database table, but the data copy failed. I am thinking the binary column is causing the DTS data copy to fail. If someone could tell me what else I could do to transfer binary data to remote database(like an example of a data transfer query), then that would help me greatly.

I wrote this query to pull some information involving 3 tables dbo.NewFamNbrs$, dbo.CGIItemMaster and dbo.CGIFamilyMaster. In addition I want to perform an update statement to update column dbo.CGIItemMaster.FamilyIDX with the information of dbo.CGIFamilyMaster.IDX. I also know that truncation is indicating that I'm trying to insert data into a field not large enough. So I performed a len() function on the both columns and order by desc and they both came up with 4 as being the max.
SELECT a.PART, a.Family, b.FamilyIDX, c.FamilyID, c.IDX FROM dbo.NewFamNbrs$ a LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CGIFamilyMaster c ON a.Family = c.FamilyID LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CGIItemMaster b ON a.PART = b.PART
Results of query:
PART Family FamilyIDX FamilyID IDX 000127233TF011468 TF01 506 000129880TF011468 TF01 506 003110 MET061468 MET06 1915
begin tran update dbo.CGIItemMaster set FamilyIDX=c.IDX FROM dbo.NewFamNbrs$ a LEFT OUTER JOIN CGIFamilyMaster c ON a.Family = c.FamilyID LEFT OUTER JOIN dbo.CGIItemMaster b ON a.PART = b.PART
When I set a column to have a default definition that uses a UDF, I am receiving the "String or binary data would be truncated" error.
Code BlockALTER FUNCTION GetDefaultClientTier ( @ClientAssets decimal(15,2) ) RETURNS char(1) AS BEGIN DECLARE @Result char(1) -- Get the first result in case of overlaps. SET @Result = CAST((SELECT TOP 1 ClientTier FROM ClientTiers WHERE @ClientAssets BETWEEN ClientAssetsFloor AND ClientAssetsCeiling) AS char(1)) RETURN @Result END
ClientTier is defined as char(1) in the table. I simply have (isnull([dbo].[GetDefaultClientTier]([ClientAssets])),(null))) as the definition. I can't use a computed column because I the values need to be editable. When inserting with SSIS, the insert works fine but the column has a value of null for each row.
When putting a character as the default (like 'A') the insert works fine.
The cast is there only because I have tried everything I can think of to get around this.
I am using FileUpload control in ASP.net 2.0 to upload files and store them into SQL server database as an image. I am fine with MS office files, image files and etc. We have Product Center (Proe) engineering software to configure parts and the files generated through this software have PLT extension when I store these files, the file type is Plian/text. I am using Fileupload.PostedFile.Content to get the file type. How can I store PLT, TIF files in SQL server? Please help.
I have a table that contains the following two columns:BITS (image(16))BIT_LENGTH (int(4))When I look at the table, I see "OLE Object" in the BITS column. Whatsyntax should I use in a SELECT statement to convert the binary imageinfo contained in "BITS" into simple text that I can read? What roledoes the BIT_LENGTH field play?
I'm using a bit-wise comparison to effectively store multiple values in one column. However once the number of values increases it starts to become too big for a int data type.you also cannot perform a bitwise & on two binary datatypes. Is there a better way to store the binary data rather than int or binary?
We are experiencing problems inserting or updating image fields fromone table to another in SQL Server.When we do this what ever size of file we insert is doubled in sizewhen it is inserted into the destination table.This happens in insert and update queries, and if we use DTS.Any help would be greatly appreciated
Hi All, I am not sure whether this is the right place to post this question. But I am unable to figure out what is the best solution to retrieve and display an image in a html file(stored in varbinary(max) column). I have a list of images in the file and I am supposed to display them. Can anybody please let me know what is the best way to do this? Thanks a lot!!

I have inherited a VS 2005 database with a table that has a column of type IMAGE. I need to change the image for one of the rows in the table. I have the new image in a *.PNG file on my C: drive. What is the correct method for inserting this file into the IMAGE column.
I am using the 3-tiered architecture design (presentation, business laws, and data acess layers). I am stuck on how to send the image the user selects in the upload file control to the BLL and then to the DAL because the DAL does all the inserts into the database. I would like to be able to check the file type in the BLL to make sure the file being uploaded is indeed a picture. Is there a way I can send the location of the file to the BLL, check the filetype, then upload the file and have the DAL insert the image into the database? I have seen examples where people use streams to upload the file directly from their presentation layer, but I would like to keep everything seperated in the three classes if possible. I also wasn't sure what variable type the image would be in the function in the BLL that receive the image from the PL. If there are any examples or tips anyone can give me that would be appreciated.
Why don't i ever get return value of 1 when the following binary column (profSignature) is null? RETURN SELECT ISNULL(profSignature, profSignature) FROM mpProfiles WHERE ApplicantID = CAST(@CID AS INT) AND ProfileID = CAST(@PID AS INT)
I have a design oriented question for a system I am developing. Because of various business concerns and issues we have been moving towards as desing that brings files into the SQL 2005 system as binary columns in a database. These files will then be processed at a later time using SSIS into relation model tables.
Normally I would just have the process be files are placed on a FTP location (or other drive path) and a location is stored in the database versus the storing of them as binary rows in the database. Then later the SSIS package runs using the path information for the conneciton manager.
Based on the proposed binary design I have two questions.
1. Can anyone speak to the advantages, disadvantages, issues they have had, etc to the binary storage method?
2. Can anyone make a suggestion on how they would handle the pulling of the file out of SQL when the file is ready to process? Do you stream it to a file and rebuild it on the physical disk, to then just import it with a connection manager for the flat file structure.... or can you stream it directly into a conneciton manager that reads it like a flat file and parses the file without ever going to disk? Any information on suggested implementations would be helpful.
When I enter over 4000 chars in any ntext field in my SQL Server 2005 database (directly in the database and through the application) I get an error saying that the data could not be updated because string or binary data would be truncated.Has anyone ever seen this? I cannot figure out what is causing it, ntext should be able to hold a lot more data that this...
When using AquaData or JDBC (inet tds driver), when doing an insert using SqlServer 2005, I get error "String or binary data would be truncated" when the data is actually OK. There are no triggers, etc. that would confuse the situation. It works fine in SqlServer 2000.
Create and populate table: create table maxtable ( tablename varchar (18) not null, [...] )
Try to insert into test3: insert into test3 (name, tbname) select i.name, o.name from dbo.sysindexes i, sysobjects o, maxtable m where i.indid > 0 and i.indid < 255 and i.id = o.id and i.indid = 1 and o.name = lower(m.tablename)
And I get the error "String or binary data would be truncated." The values being selected for i.name and o.name have maximum length of 18. There are other rows in sysindexes and sysobjects with longer values, but they are not being selected.
The error does not occur with SQL Server Management Studio, and does not occur using SqlServer 2000.
When I am trying to do the same thing in the insert stored procedure, I get an error message: "Disallowed implicit conversion from data type varchar to data type binary, table 'MyDB.dbo.MyTABLE', column 'MyCOLUMN'. Use the convert function to run this query."
