How can I decrease the size of Word documents saving as image field to SQL
2000 database. I'm using PB 8.

Problem: I have records(same documents) with sizes 1.5Mb and 145Kb and 1.5Mb
is not an option.

You could use some kind of compression. zlib (http://www.gzip.org/zlib/) is
patent and royalty free, plus Roland Smith has a free PB wrapper for it
(http://www.topwizprogramming.com/).
