Hi<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your request. I think that you can try using the following code as an example.

//Create connection

string connectionString = "server=Web1;database=TestDB;uid=sa;pwd=dsa43r;";

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection conn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(connectionString);

string commandString = "INSERT INTO TestTable ([FirstName], [LastName], [Photo]) VALUES (@FirstName, @LastName, @Photo)";

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand command = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(commandString, conn);

//Open document

Document doc = new Document(@"Test137\in.doc");

//Get table from document

Table docTable = doc.FirstSection.Body.Tables[0];

using (conn)


//Open connection to datat base


//Loop through all rows in the table

foreach (Row row in docTable.Rows)


//Exclude first row (this row containf field names)

if (!row.Equals(docTable.FirstRow))



//Add parameters

command.Parameters.Add("FirstName", row.Cells[0].ToTxt());

command.Parameters.Add("LastName", row.Cells[1].ToTxt());

//Check if the third cell containf image

NodeCollection shapes = row.Cells[2].GetChildNodes(NodeType.Shape, true, false);

if (shapes.Count > 0 && (shapes[0] as Shape).HasImage)

//If so add image bytes as value of query parameter

command.Parameters.Add("Photo", (shapes[0] as Shape).ImageData.ImageBytes);


//Else use NULL value

command.Parameters.Add("Photo", null);

//Execute commant





I hope this could help you.

Best regards.

Thanks a lot
