Storing Word Document in SQL Server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
    I am wrighting a Silverlight application for a professional placement firm and they would like to be able to add a resume to the data for a person and be able to search that resume.  I am currently designing the database in SQL Server 2008 and was wondering the best way to store the resume.  Should I just put it into a VarChar(Max) column or could I store a MS Word or XPS document in SQL Server?   What are the best practrices for this and can you point me to documentation that would help with designing and implementing such a task?
