Hello Jevgeni,

If you wish to read the LOB column (BLOB, CLOB, DBCLOB) you'll need to use some form of SQL. (Either embedded SQL or CLI.)

To read/write/update the file (without the LOB column) using _Ropen() and friends, you'll need to create a logical file or SQL view that excludes the LOB columns.

Good luck!

Agree with you. There are lots of other methods to get number of records held on file.
And I have solved this particular problem in another way.

However my feeling is that my way was the easiest one from programming point of view :-)
Using APIs requires more code.

But my question was different.
Is it possible to work with tables containing BLOB/CLOB fields from ILE/C without using embedded SQL?
