Storing binary data in a web page

I am developing using Visual Studio .NET 2002 using ASP.NET and
VB.NET. This is a web-based project which needs to install various
ActiveX components on the users PC. ActiveX is needed because the
project involves automation of Word, Excel etc on the CLIENT side.

I have binary data which is an EXE file stored inside an SQL Server
Image table which I need to pass to the clients browser and create the
original EXE file on their hard disk. I want to store the data inside
a web-page and then use the very large data block as a parameter to an
embedded ActiveX control which will take the data and re-create the
original file.

The area I need help with is storing large amounts of binary data
inside a web-page. Do I use XML? Do I use RegisterClientS criptBlock
and build up a large script which is a function just to return the

Any ideas please?

Mike Bredbury.

Is it possible to store the data in a datatable in the hard disk instead of the memory? By default, when a datatable's being filled, the table (and data) will remain in memory. Would it be possible to save this data in another medium besides the memory? Everything would stay the same but instead of filling up the datatable by storing it in the memory, i'd be storing it somewhere in the hard drive. Thanks.

Hello! Suppose I have a class that contains only public members of builtin types and a default constructor.

User wants to go this route instead of storing pointers in the DB and the documents outside. Only time I tried it was with only MS Word docs - and that was a loooong time ago - and it seemed to me like there were performance issues at the time. How about the different types? The MS docs I would expect Access to differentiate and handle appropriately (i.e. .DOC and .XLS).. but how about ..PDF? and can I stash a .TXT document in the...
