Has anybody stored PDF or JPG files in binary format on a SQL Server? I've got a need where I'd much rather have a PDF or JPG converted to binary format and then saved in a SQL record. I'm not sure if this is possible, or even advisable. I'm thinking maybe a hundred pages worth of docs or images in a particular day. Disk space is not an issue, but performance would be.

Any insights would be appreciated.

Thanks,
David

Clarification: I'd also like the capability of storing a scanned image directly from the scanner into the table record and not have file created during the process. I've read a few articles on how to control a scanner and output a file, but I'd like to direct that output to the binary field.
