Hi all,

I'm really need your help regarding how to insert image into blob field in Firebird/Interbase 6.0....I'm using connection trough ODBC ( "DRIVER=Firebird/InterBase(r) driver;UID=SYSDBA;PWD=masterkey;DBNAME=c:\ibss\database\ibssdemo.gdb "

I can manage to pull into SQL Server 2008..but not for Interbase....can anyone help me...here my code that giving error...(SQL -104)

If Not myReader.Item("PHOTO").Equals(DBNull.Value) Then

                    ' Get the image from the database.
                    Dim imagedata() As Byte = CType(myReader.Item("PHOTO"), Byte())

                    Dim K As Long
                    '      '
                    K = UBound(imagedata)
                    '    'Simpan data temp folder
                    Dim fs As New FileStream("" & myReader.Item(0) & ".jpg", FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.Write)
                    fs.Write(imagedata, 0, K)

 Dim imgName As String = ("" & myReader.Item(0) & ".jpg")
   Dim fs1 As FileStream = New FileStream(imgName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)

                       Dim picByte As Byte() = New Byte(fs1.Length - 1) {}

                      fs1.Read(picByte, 0, System.Convert.ToInt32(fs1.Length))


   Dim Str As String = "update CARDHOLDER set PHOTO = (" & "@Img) where CARDHOLDERID = '" & myReader.Item(0).ToString & "'  "
                 Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand(Str, cn)
                    cmd.Parameters.Add("@Img", odbcType.Binary)
