Hi,

I've just been fighting with this one myself. I found the answer here:

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/9i/FileUploadDownloadProcedures9i.php?display_type=printable

In esssence, if you are using mod_plsql, the software will do it for you and put it in a table you nominate in the DAD.

Writing this back out again you can use Java or utl_file.

Hope this helps.

Search the 'Forms' forum for 'blob'. There are a few solutions listed there.

If and only if you want to use client/server text_io and forms? Which is terribly slow.

Also, if you're running web forms, the file will need to be on the middle tier already. There is a Java Bean to move files for forms but it will only put things on the middle tier. In the UK we have a phrase: "as much use as a chocolate teapot". If you're running a *nix implementation you can mount a file system from the middle-tier server onto the database server and away you go, but windows is much harder because of its single-user nature and most of my clients run windows, 'cos they prefer the enemy they know.

I've been through this already.

Or maybe I'm wrong? If there is a way to get stuff straight onto the database server from web forms without some horrible Apache/windoze services kludge please tell me.

Search the forms forum for 'webutil'. There are both 'host' and 'client_host' commands available.
