Error Saving File to Blob Field: Doesn't it take a byte[ ]?

Error Saving File to Blob Field: Doesn't it take a byte[ ]?

Error Saving File to Blob Field: Doesn't it take a byte[ ]?

I'm trying to save an uploaded file from a C# asp.net page into a Blob field in an Oracle table.

I'm putting the file into a byte array and passing that as the parameter value, but when I execute the Oracle command object (using the System.Data.OracleClient namespace), it throws an error saying

"Cannot bind type System.Byte[] as Blob"

So what should the datatype be when putting data into a blob field then?
