    Unanswered: Blobbb

    I am working on upgrading an old VB 6 app running with a paradox db to VB.NET running on MS SQL. What I need is an automated way to extract the data from the paradox in .NET, and insert it into MS SQL.

    I downloaded the ODBC driver for paradox and queried a table. It works fine. The thing is this table has two blob fields in it and .NET doesn't even recgonize them (meaning this table with 7 fields only shows 5).

    Any idea on how to do a binary read or something to get these blobs out??

    I'm not sure of that, but i remember that the only good ODBC drivers for paradox tables were those from MERANT, and they were not available for download, you should pay for them.

    Just an insight...

    The only failure is not trying to do it.
