Export Image Data Types to Local PC from SQL Database

Hello All,
I am stuck on a task that I need to complete. What I have is a SQL 2005
DB running with a Table called Docs. The table structure consists of
the following:

Table Structure for Docs
------------------------------------
DocID int - Primary Key
ClientID int - CustomerID
CreatedByUser nvarchar - UserName
CreatedDate datetime - Date of Document stored in SQL DB
Content image - Bytes of actually document
ContentType nvarchar - (application/msword)
ContentTypeImag e nvarchar - Path to Image of Document Type(such as
word.gif")
ContentSize int - Size of Document
FriendlyName nvarchar - Name of Document

What I want to do is create a query to export all documents from the
SQL DB to a local folder on the server or even my local pc. Can this be
done?

Thanks

First of all, if you are at the position of changing the table schema,
I recommend that you change the data type of image to varbinary(MAX).
varbinary(MAX) permits as much data as image, but is very much like a
require varbinary, and has none of the many quirks with image.

To answer the question, no, you can't just say SELECT and have
files created in the file system. You would need to write a program
to read the column and write the binary value to disk.

My client has an MS Access database application on her local machine. I have full access to that in terms of changing the design.

Hi there, SUMMARY: 1) When I use phpadmin to export a large database, the file created on my local PC never containes all the tables and information. It seems to max out at about 10mb. 2) Will running mysqldump from command line on a live in-use DB (with one table containing 350,000 rows) pose any risks and have any large effect of current use?

I'm trying to put together a simple access database that will allow a friend to maintain a simple database of products/pictures/prices, which he can then export to html and upload to a website. Problem is that access doesn't export the images when saving to HTML :( The export to PDF solution isn't appropriate in this instance, is their a third party print to html utility anywhere, or any other easy solution to this problem?
