Hi All,

In my application. I am saving pdf files in database in binary form. Now i want to get the binary content and make it open in Pdf or in Ms Word.

How i can do this? Do i need to do the binary conversion? I have no idea about it. I need your suggestions.

Thanks in advance
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"
