Hello, everyone.

I know that it's generally NOT a good idea to insert a file into the database - it's better to store the file on the server and provide a path to the file for the database.


I have a client that is insisting that the files must be stored in the database, not on the server, and I am not able to convince the client otherwise.

I've never had to do this, before - all my other clients heed my warning about file storage in the database - so I'm totally inexperienced with this aspect of SQL. I don't know much, other than the datatype needs to be varbinary(max). I've got the form uploading the file to the web server - what's the next step?
