I want to save image from Picture box to SQL Server DB. I am trying to do this using the following code but cannot able to do so. Please help.

My Code Snippets are as following:

 Dim fs As FileStream = Nothing
    fs = New FileStream(picPhoto.ImageLocation, FileMode.Open)
    Dim fi As FileInfo = New FileInfo(picPhoto.ImageLocation)
    Dim temp As Long = fi.Length
    Dim lung As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(temp)
    Dim picture As Byte() = New Byte(lung - 1) {}
    fs.Read(picture, 0, lung)
    fs.Close()

    Dim FileName_Renamed As Odbc.OdbcParameter = Nothing
    Dim pic As Odbc.OdbcParameter = Nothing

    CN.OpenConnection()
    CMD = New Odbc.OdbcCommand("SavePhoto", CN.DBConnection)
    CMD.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure

    pic = New Odbc.OdbcParameter("@Picture", Odbc.OdbcType.Image)
    pic.Value = picture
    CMD.Parameters.Add(pic)

    FileName_Renamed = New Odbc.OdbcParameter("@ID", Odbc.OdbcType.VarChar)
    FileName_Renamed.Value = txtID.Text
    CMD.Parameters.Add(FileName_Renamed)

    CMD.ExecuteNonQuery()
    CN.closeconnection()

My Stored Procedure are as following:

USE [EarthMovers]
GO
/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[SavePhoto]    Script Date: 06/29/2010 13:22:35 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS OFF

The first thing you should do, is to use ADO.NET System.Data.SqlClient instead of Odbc. That might be cause of the problem.
Otherwise the code looks good.
Take a look at this for reference.

Dear Oxiegen,

Thanx for ur prompt reply. I know that it would have been better if i use sqlconnection instead of ODBC but i am using DSN to connect to DB so i cannot use sqlconnection. Please help me.

Thanks in advance
Sid

My apologies.

Try this.
If it doesn't work. Please tell where/on what line the error occurs.
And what the error message says.
