Why "binary conversion"? What are you talking about?

Do you think MS Word is not binary (docx is a zipped set of XML files, basically)? What is not binary? There is no such thing. So, what is "binary conversion"?
If it's not relevant, what's the problem? Store the file content in DB, that's it.

You can write the below code to achieve it:

Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=yourfile.pdf")
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
