Subject Re: Blobs
ISQL sucks for blob manipulation/usage.

You can however display them by using
the SET BLOB ALL command within ISQL.

If you enjoy the command line stuff try
to find QLI.exe for 6.01.

Or check out one of the IB sites for client
tools. There are many that are more robust
than ISQL.
