Another BLOB question

Another BLOB question

I'm not a C++ guy, but I've managed to rescue my data from a little (orphaned) app that used an inline sqlite db. I've got my data into MySql and corrected all of the little things (autoincrement > auto_increment). But the BLOBs are throwing me.

in MySql queries, the BLOB columns return as the word BLOB instead of the data (it's a reference tool, so the information is all text no images, probably some html formatting code).

In DW3 with WA DataAssist I get an unspecified dB error on every table that a BLOB datatype.

I would have built the initial product differently too, but it is what it is. There are over 2200 records. I just want to rescue my data and get into a form I can use.

Any ideas? References?

I create some test pages with DataAssist with a blob data type and i did not run into any issue.

On what page are you getting the error.

tnx

just to round this out, I found the problem. When SQLite was used inline in a C++ app, it put DATE() as the first characters in the BLOB, so MySQL hangs on it. It took me a while to figure it out, not to mention not knowing what I'm going to do with some 2k of entries.

Anyway, sorry to be so long getting back to this.
