    Please clarify what you want. Are you asking how you can upload a PDF file to the database from Forms? If so, take a look at the Forms add-on; WebUtil. In your case you would use the Client_To_DB function. Details can be found in the Builder Help within the Webutil book.

    If you are using Forms without webutil you could convert your PDF with the help of a little c program (RAW2HEX) from RAW to HEX on the client, upload it with text_io and convert it from HEX to RAW back in the database. If you want to download it you could do this the other way around and convert it from HEX2RAW on the Client.
