    I have done a quick search and found some links which will help you..

    1.Blob with Access


    2. Writing Binary data to a webform:


    If you have a gridiview or some data bound control in which you want to show an image then you can do a shown below:

    under your template field you can put <asp:Image ImageUrl="~/ImageLoaderPage.aspx?ImageID=1" ..../>

    and under  ImageLoaderPage.aspx you can write down the code as shown in above article # 2.

    Give a startup and if you stuck some where give me a shout i am here any time to help you..

    If you face any problem feel free to give me a shout...

    Thank you,

    Happy Coding!!

    Thanks klpatil for the information,

    I would be able to read the long binary data from the access table and save it in the text file but the data I have is not a bitmap or jpeg, it is the RTF data with all the format in it.   Is there a way to read/convert the RTF file to the readable format?

     RTF data:

    {\rtf1\ansi\deff0\deflang1033 {\fonttbl{\f0\fmodern COURIER NEW;}{\f1\froman\fcharset2 Symbol;}{\f2\fswiss Arial;}{\f3\froman Times New Roman;}}{\colortbl\red0\green0\blue0;}\f3\fs16\cf0 {\par\par DETAILS NOT AVAILABLE

    //Writing RTF file to the text area but still have the rtf format

    using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader("textfilepath"))while ((line = sr.ReadLine()) != null)


    txtMultiLine.Text += line;
