Start a new topic Input Byte[] into image

I need to make the sql code in c# to execute to add a byte array as I am transferring the data from one database to another. I am able to get the data out of the first one and put all but the image(byte[]) into the second one

What you need to be sure when passing data into an INSERT command (or really any case you're passing data to a SQL statement) is that you use parameters.  This preserves the .NET type all the way into the database engine.  We have a few examples in our documentation at:

ADO.NET - Common Operations

but here's the relevant sample under Inserting Data using a Parameterized Command:


using (VistaDBConnection connection = new VistaDBConnection())
    connection.ConnectionString = @"Data Source=C:\mydatabase.vdb5";

    using (VistaDBCommand command = new VistaDBCommand())
        int Age = 21;

        command.Connection = connection;
        command.CommandText = "INSERT INTO MyTable (MyColumn) VALUES (@age)";
        command.Parameters.Add("@age", Age);


Have you tried:  

INSERT INTO transfertable 
(f1, f2, f3,........., imagefield) 
SELECT f1, f2, f3,........., imagefield 
FROM originaltable
