Hi

I have an advantage table with a binary field. This should contain .bmp bitmaps for displaying on a report.

Somehow the user has added content into the binary which does not appear to be any form of valid image.

Is there any way I can see into the contents of the memo to understand what they may have inserted into the memo?

Thanks for looking

What programming language are you using?

One way would be to use the AdsBinaryToFile API and just write the contents to some file and then use your favorite hex editor to look at it.
