Don't escape a binary image using the text style escape sequences. Bad
things happen.

Use this instead for your insert statement.....

Connection.Execute("insert gifdb set gifid='gif52', gif=0x" +

Where, in VB I use.....

Private Function ProcessHex(D As Variant) As String
    Dim Buffer() As Byte
    Dim PH As String
    Dim Count As Long
    Buffer = D
    PH = String(UBound(Buffer) + 1, "0")
    For Count = LBound(Buffer) To UBound(Buffer) Step 2
        Mid(PH, Count + 1, 2) = Right("0" & Hex(Buffer(Count)), 2)
    ProcessHex = PH
End Function 

This passes the gif to the MySql server in a way that none of the data gets
corrupted by translation loss. This is what I use, it works very well. It
should be easy to convert the above routine into script.

I have a question though... Why not just use the dll's created by DBWiz? It
takes care of all that for you.....

Let me know how it works out.....
