BLOB fields & Crystal
I have a BLOB field that I want to pull into a report. The data in this BLOB field originates from an incident management software application as attachments. The field value in question contains the attachments; word docs, excel files; sometimes multiple files. The incident management software also encrypts the attachments, which is a different problem entirely. Is there some trick to get this data to display?
I tried inserting the BLOB field (got a blank field value), inserting an OLE object and pasteing the BLOB value (got incomplete encrypted file values) and lastly I tried pointing the OLE object to an HTML file (this worked the best, but the file was still encrypted).
What language are you using for your front end?
The front end language is C and uses Java to connect to the back end.
