I have a varbinary as a primary key of a table and cannot
add varbinary as a datatype in a PB datawindow. I need to be
able to perform updates using the varbinary. Is there any
way to accomplish this directly in PB. I know I could create
an update stored procedure that can figure this all out, but
I am hoping that somehow I can add the varbinary datatype in
PB. I have over 100 datawindows that I need to do this.
Will a later version of PB (like 10.5) support this?

I am using PB 9.0.2 and ASE 12.5.2.
Please let me know if you need more information.
Thanks in advance,
Jim
