    In LongRow You can store Pictures, Graphics Etc.
    These dataTypes can not be used in Select Statements in SQL *Plus, They can be viewd in Front End applications.

    To store, Again you have to use From end Tool Like Developer to Store Images ...
    Thanks

    Hi nic,

    Yes, you can use BLOB as the data type. In addition you should be using DBMS_LOB package to insert the image into this BLOB type.

    You can refer book : Oracle Built-in packages by Steven Feuerstein (O'Reilly publications) for further help.

    thanks,
