BizDocContent table get Content image column


We were developing a reporting tool above TN using its TN database. Is there way to get the column Content (which is defined as image for SQL server) in BizDocContent table as String via an SQL.

We get only documents containing xml, I am also wondering if wM TN stores docs directly as String or some java object and encoding issues if any with it.



I am trying to do something similar. Were you able to figure out how to get the content from BizDocContent table and convert it to a readable format ? I tried to extract it as an image an diplay it in a PictureBox control in VB but it does not get recognized as an image. Any tips would be appreciated.
