a) as a large object. So all the lo help in the manual. It's a little
scattered around, and I'm not clear about all the ins and outs, but it
does let you stick large, arbitrary binary stuff in your tables.
However, in Access, it doesn't appear as a graphic file or movie, as
it would if it were an "OLE Object". Perhaps it can; I've never
figured out how.
b) as a bytea type. Bytea is a little-known, perhaps little-used field
type for binary data. With pg7.0.x, you'll still be limited to 8k rows,
but with the magic of 7.1, that restriction is gone. Again, although
you can store binary data this way, I don't think it can *appear*
this way, as an "OLE Object". Perhaps wiser minds know how.
