How to save byte array to database in

I have a byte array of a file and I need to store it in my database in a field that was dropped for an image of type.

However I have a problem, my data access class takes an sql string and for example writes it to the database.

"EXECUTE saved by proc @ parm1, @ parm2, @ parm3"

However, the problem is that I cannot figure out how to pass the byte array into a string so that I can add it as an argument.

Hope this makes sense.

I also understand that I can create parameters in com objects, but I don't want to do that as it will break my entire data access class and I am not ready to do this at the moment.

Thanks for any help.

In SQL statements, you can use the hexadecimal notation "0x1323235 ..." to represent binary data, but this is not a good way to deal with it. You have to use parameters:

sqlCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@parameterName", byteArrayInstance)




The answering question is about how to burn a byte array into a string. Convert byte array to string

byte[] b = new byte[100];
string s = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(b);
