"Copy and Paste" image into SQL Database.

P: 1
I want to add images to my database by copying and pasting the image.

I am using MS SQL Server Express 2008 and MS VB Express 2008. I want to create a simple program that displays data including images (.jpg) of items and text that describes characteristcs about the items.

The images are currently in a MS Word table. I would like to simply convert the table into an SQL database, but seems not possible. Failing that, I would like to copy and paste the images into the SQL table.

I have tried different data types (image, binary, varbinary) all to no avail. I have searched the help sites but haven't yet hit upon a solution.

I would appreciate any help.

It would be better if you just store the file and path name on the database and just point to it on your APP side.
