Can't view content of blob field in form.

Can't view content of blob field in form.

Can't view content of blob field in form.

just finished a longer project for a refined version of my main table showing information plus resumes stored in a blob filed. The resumes are not, however, visible. They are there and can be opened. Any idea of a solution?  

RE: Can't view content of blob field in form.

I am going to rephrase this in another posting.

RE: Can't view content of blob field in form.

just in case anyone is searching for a solution to this issue, the problem apparently lies with the container, not the field. No amount of manipulation seems to fix it. The solution (See later post) is to create a new form starting from blank form, adding the text edit field as an expandable text field first, then migrating the features of the original, failed form by cut and paste one page or section at a time. It works to some extent, although there are still blob issues.
