we insert the word files in database in varbinary format.
Now we want to retrieve the word files then we are converting the varbinary format to string.

Here we are using the code:-
string x = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(buffer).ToLower();
It is working for .doc files only.
when we retrieve the .docx file it can't convert to string and result is not getting.
How can we convert .docx file as byte to string format when we are retrieving
string str1 = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(value).
Iam trying with the above code
It is not working.

What is the error returned when you try to convert back your .docx file ?
Are you sure ASCII encoding is the most relevant ? Does it give a different result with Encoding.UTF8 for instance ?

System.Text.Encoding enc = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII;
string myString = enc.GetString(myByteArray )

Try with the
