Hi,
Iam using Sysbase DB to store word documents.
I was stuck to choose the column type for storing word documents.( I think word documents nothing but BLOBs). Sybase wont support BLOB column type, But indirectly it has a specific column type to store big objects.
Can anyone help me out in choosing column type for BLOBs in Sybase?

Thanks,
Sivasankar

Sivasankar,
As a recall, Sybase provides IMAGE as a BLOB type. Even though your document isn't an image, you can still use one this type. A doc file is just binary data - like an image is.
