If you feel the need to insert something that large into the database, you may wish to revisit your architecture. Perhaps a better solution in this type of situation is to store a path to a document repository folder where you can just store the file on disk instead.

Solution 1

Try reading the documentation on the TSQL varbinary type[^] next time.

The field can be defined with a number, from 1 to 8000, or with max, which can be up to 2^31-1 bytes, or 2,147,483,647 bytes.

What you use in your code depends entirely on how the column is defined in your database.

Agree, +5!

database field is [varbinary(MAX)]
but the parameter is SqlDbType.VarBinary;
can this SqlDbType.VarBinary be more than 8000?
and how do i define it?

Instead of 8000, you specify -1 for a VarBinary(MAX).
