Hi,

you need to place your question in the SQL Server 2005 forum (http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Forum338-1.aspx instead of the 2008 forum.

Try this,

CREATE TABLE Img(Id INT, Obj VARBINARY(MAX))

INSERT INTO Img (Id ,Obj)
VALUES (1,(SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(BULK 'c:\windows\Blue Lace 16.bmp', SINGLE_BLOB) Obj))

DROP TABLE Img

INSERT INTO Img (Id ,FileName,Obj)
VALUES (1,'Blue Lace 16.bmp',(SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(BULK 'c:\windows\Blue Lace 16.bmp', SINGLE_BLOB) Obj))


DROP TABLE Img

It is generally considered bad practice to store images in the SQL Server DB. Its pretty inefficient. You are better off storing the image in the file system and storing the path in the database.

Lowell's solution is a good one. The Image datatype is deprecated thus the need for varbinary(max).

Sanjay openrowset does not allow variables...it must be a static string inside single quotes. Replace @image with 'c:/filename'

You could build an openrowset as a string and use dynamic sql instead

And don't forget as previously mentioned that the image datatype is deprecated. Instead use varbinary(max). It will behave the same way but is the newer preferred datatype for this.
