In PowerBuilder 8, the BLOB data is larger than 1KB, how can I send them? What about a binary file, thanks!

The only data type support is a string or an array of bytes. Since they are the same thing in powerbuilder, you would not be able to send binary data. The data would be truncated after the first "0".

Someone at Sybase may have a way for you to get around this limitation, but I do not know of a way other than to use an environment that supports BSTR's (like VB or VC++)
