Martijn ... I always thought that the 'blob' in a function had to be an
existing blob element i.e. a field in an existing table, so trying to
upload a static variable in the first example is wrong as it does not
exist as a blob, while your insert is converting the static variable
into a format that can be stored in the identified blob. Your blob
function needs the field name of the blob you want to work with?
