Problems inserting PDF (Blob) to Mysql DB

Hi List /.

I need to insert a PDF file as a Blob to a Mysql DB.

I’m doing something like this:

f=File.open(x).read
insert=%^INSERT INTO main_recibos
( recibo_id, sso , periodo , recibo )
VALUES
( ‘#{recibo_id}’ , ‘#{sso}’, #{periodo}, ‘#{f}’ ); ^
@mysql.query(insert)

But I am getting ‘Please check the syntax of your SQL’
And the error seems created by the funny chars on the binary data.
I’ve already tried escaping in many ways the data with out success.

Any idea how to get rid of this error /?

Thank you

Hi Rodrigo,

Are you able to try the SQL directly against your MySQL db for a test ?
Might be worth doing something like:

  1. First just confirm you are able to insert a simple ‘text’ file into
    the DB using this sql. (…‘recbibo’)…VALUES (…'This is my text
    file\ndoes this work?\n");

  2. Then move onto a (small) PDF (or other binary) file: perhaps ‘dress’
    up the binary file (edit it like a text file) and add the SQL round it ?

I’m just wondering whether this is really a Ruby issue or not ? (more to
do with mysql SQL syntax ?)

Cheers

John
