Converting binary to text

Hey,

Another 'must be simple' question.. I'm wishing to convert a binary
field into a textual representation of that binary data. i.e. come out
with what the query analyser would display, and not try to convert the
binary into ascii/whatever encoded text.

Cheers for any clues,
Chris

Sorted now, through the master.dbo.fn_varbintohexstr function... took an
unnatural amount of google-ing tho :)
