Hi all,

Hope everyone is doing well.  Foggy gray day here, but the snow is melting!

I have a client-server app running in Studio 5 against an Oracle database.  The client is interested in storing and displaying PDF files, and I have a few questions I'm hoping someone can help with:

1) Can I store PDF files in Oracle as a BLOB type?  If so, what do I need to do to insert and extract via a Studio interface?

2) Can I display PDF files in an Omnis window?    If so, how?

3) If I want Omnis to display a pdf file externally (Preview on a Mac, ??? on Windows) can I do this from Studio 5?  If so, what is the syntax?
