Previous message posts from other people have indicated to me that I
need to send my binary data to SSA in the form of a literal ASCII hex
string. I assumed that the data was being stored internally in SSA in
binary format. But when I read out the binary data it is still an ASCII
hex string. Is there any way to REALLY store binary data in SSA???
That is data greater than 33k in length. We are trying to store actual
TIFF images that vary from 20k to 80k in length.
