Hi there,<BR> <BR>Problem: I need to store a file ( any type ) from the server&#039s harddrive into an oracle8 database using a LOB. Also I need to retrive it back from the database into the servers Harddrive. <BR> Assume that the file exists on the hardrive where the database is located. <BR> Can anyone suggest a component or access to a source code that does similar functionality.<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>Manju
