Storing Data in Binary Field using ADODB

Hello everyone,

I am trying to store data in a binary field of an SQL-Server table using
So far, I have managed to store a record but not any data in the binary
I only get exceptions on various part. I have tried both AppendChunk and
using a stream object.
Unfortunately all the examples I can find in the Net and on the Microsoft
are in VB and don't translate easily into C++.

Does anyone have an example where this is done in C++??
Here is my code if you want to check it it's pretty messy because I've been
trying all kinds of things:
#include <ctime>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <string.h>

#import "C:\Programme\G emeinsame Dateien\System\ ado\msado15.dll "
rename("EOF", "ADOEOF")

using namespace std;

#include <windows.h>

const AnzMesswerte = 50;
typedef struct {
unsigned int ZeitStempel;
short Uoc, Isc, Umpp, UdcIst, UausIst, Uiso, Iiso, Tin, Tk, Tmod[5];
short UGenIst[AnzMesswerte];
short IGenIst[AnzMesswerte];
unsigned int ZeitStempelEnde ;
} SatzStruct;

typedef struct {
unsigned int sec;
unsigned short us, ms;
} ExakteZeit;

#define MaxRetries 10
#define SatzSize sizeof(Satz)
short retries = 0;
unsigned int temp_int;
unsigned int *int_ptr;
unsigned int sec, usec, usec2;
bool err = false;
ExakteZeit Zeit;
SatzStruct Satz;
