Insertion of documents and images

To store documents or images in your database, you can write an application that reads the contents of the file into a variable, and supplies that variable as a value for an INSERT statement.

You can also use the xp_read_file system procedure to insert file contents into a table. This procedure is useful if you want to insert file contents from Interactive SQL, or some other environment that does not provide a full programming language. DBA authority is required to use this procedure.
