WriteBlobPartMBS(data as blob, path as string, offset as integer) as string
Writes the blob to the given file path. On success returns the path. On failure returns error.
Path must be native path and should only contain ASCII characters.
Use the offset to write chunk after chunk to a file.
If you use insert to add blob data as hex strings, you can use this function to write the blob to the file system instead of a blob field. Note that queries have a text limit in length! If you use ReadBlobMBS again passing the path you can later read the same file.
update test set data=NULL,name=WriteBlobPartMBS((select data from test where RowID=5),"/datafolder/5.dat"; 0) where RowID=5 Insert into "test" (name) values (WriteBlobPartMBS(x'48656C6C6F20576F726C64', "/test.txt"; 100000))
Back to function list.
