Hi List,

Forms 6i, Oracle db 10GR2

A question which looks simple, but got me stumped:

I created a table:

CREATE TABLE DOCS
(
DOCS_ID INTEGER NOT NULL,
INHOUD CLOB NULL
)

Through Forms I can INPUT values in the clob-column. But if the data is a word_document, I can input it, but not 'output' it in MS-Word.

Is it really necessary to first ( through dbms_lob pkg ) extract the clob, save it on a disk location, and then open Word to open that file?

Again, when I want to create a new document, I can do it through Forms directly, so it seems to me rather strange one cannot open directly.

Any help, pointers etc will be appreciated. I googled, searched through forums, but alas..

Regards

Rob Zijlstra

For saving a word document onto database, use BLOB datatype instead of CLOB.

Hi David,

No I did not solve it. I'm 'buried' in other work at the moment.

Thanks for the interest.

regards
