Using PDFs stored in SQL Server

Is there any way to use PDF file images that are stored as SINGLE_BLOBs in a VARBINARY column in MS SQL?

Hi puszczyk,

It seems like a select statement returning that PDF should do the job, using the PlanetPress Database plugin or via scripting. Once that result set is in your data stream in workflow, it should be usable as a PDF file. You could save your job file right after the task with extension “.pdf” and open it outside PlanetPress to confirm you have a valid PDF at that point.

If that isn’t what you’re looking for, can you clarify your request?
thanks. Regards,
