Here is what I am trying to do:

update MyTable
set [value] =
(select BulkColumn FROM OPENROWSET(Bulk 'C:\MyFile.txt', SINGLE_BLOB) as blob)

The error:
Msg 206, Level 16, State 2, Line 3
Operand type clash: varbinary(max) is incompatible with ntext

The table:
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[MyTable](
[column1] [varchar](256) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NOT NULL,
[column2] [varchar](20) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL,
[value] [ntext] COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL,
[column4] [datetime] NULL,
[column5] [varchar](32) COLLATE SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS NULL
) ON [PRIMARY] TEXTIMAGE_ON [PRIMARY]

I get the same error if instead of update I do an Insert into. My confusion is I do not see the datatype "varbinary(max) in play anywhere here.

I'm not real familiar with OPENROWSET, but it appears that the OPENROWSET command in SQL Server 2005 is using varbinary(max) as the SQL Server datat type for SINGLE_BLOB in the process.
