have a full text catalog set up so that when files (.doc, .pdf, .xls and others) are inserted into a SQL table as image data-type they will be indexed and searchable. When the files are uploaded using OPENROWSET(BULK...SINGLE_BLOB... everything works fine.

When files are uploaded (to the same table) by way of byte array, they are not indexed and are not searchable. Or at least results are not returned for these file. Am I missing something? Is there a way to make the byte array method work?

I did find out, though, that if a .txt file is uploaded by way of byte array, it IS indexed and searchable.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
