While inserting data from an ASP page into a field which is defined as LONG RAW data type in ORACLE , I am getting error as "invalid hex number". Oracle stores data in a binary mode in LONG RAW data type, so before insertion it needs to be converted from ascii to binary and if the same fields needs to be used for the select has to be converted back from binary to ascii. Can anyone let me know how to do this using ASP and ORACLE.Any help would be appreciated<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>rohitkapoor@usa.com<B R>
