David,

Thanks for the suggestion...I'll check it out.
I can upload the file to a webserver from the field when I know the string
length of the field (precalculated) but, I need to be able to precalculate
it from within RR. I'll check for the eof.

When you say it doesn't work, what result are you getting? Might a
short value  arise from Rev seeing an end-of-string character in the
binary data? Have you checked whether you can put the same data back
to a file from the field, and get all of it?

cheers
