I am trying to get graphics data into a table - envision a Movie database and I want to include DVD art into the table.  I am able to get the graphic into the clipboard and then paste it into the table.  Everything appears to be fine until I leave that record - then the graphics that I could previously see is no more.  I've tried everything that I can think of within native Pdox and nothing helps.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

for many reasons, stuffing graphics or files in a paradox BLOB field is not recommended.. it's not stable, never has been

use a text field to hold the file name, use the web and/or a native "viewer" to work with the file.. (i.e. a word doc gets opened by Word, your default Win file viewer opens jpegs, etc)
