Hi bobb, thanks for your reply. If I found the right post (reading an image from blob in mysql and displaying it), then thanks very much but I don't think it'll apply too much to my situation. I can retrieve the contents of the blob field fine, its updating it that causes the problems.
Thanks again, though. I posted directly out of Outlook Express, by the way, just hitting "New Post".
