Post by Amit Agarw » Fri, 03 Feb 1995 03:11:05

have libraries which i can link to my programs to talk to the database.

Thanks for your time.

I have hundreds of "rich" (doc/rtf/ppt/xls/pdf) and html documents.

I'm wondering what is the best database design for this?
should I use two columns (text and image) to store textual (parsed) content
and the rich files seperatlly? or can I use a text field for the "rich"
files as well?

I have no plan to use ms-sql full text search, just store the "rich" files
AS IS in the database for further processing.
