Upload Files to Database in Asp.net Download Files From Database in SQL Server

Introduction: 

Here I will explain how to save or insert or upload word document files into SQL Server database and download files from database in asp.net using C#, VB.NET.
Description: 
   
In previous articles I explained Save/Upload files in folder and Download files from folder, Save Images in folder and images path in database and show images from folder and many articles relating to asp.net,C#, VB.NET etc…. Now I will explain how to upload word document files into SQL Server database and download files from database in asp.net using C#, VB.NET.
 


To implement this first design table in your database like below to save file details in database.
Column Name
Data Type
Allow Nulls
Id
int(set identity property=true)
No
FileName
varchar(50)
Yes
FileType
varchar(50)
Yes
FileData
varbinary(MAX)
Yes
Once table creation completed open visual studio and create new website. After that write the following code in your aspx page like this

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head id="Head1">
<title>Upload Word Files to Database and Download files from database in asp.net
</title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileUpload1" runat="server" /><br />
<asp:Button ID="btnUpload" runat="server" Text="Upload" onclick="btnUpload_Click" />
</div>
<div>
<asp:GridView ID="gvDetails" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataKeyNames="Id">
<HeaderStyle BackColor="#df5015" Font-Bold="true" ForeColor="White" />
<Columns>
<asp:BoundField DataField="Id" HeaderText="Id" />
<asp:BoundField DataField="FileName" HeaderText="FileName" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="FilePath">
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkDownload" runat="server" Text="Download" OnClick="lnkDownload_Click"></asp:LinkButton>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
</Columns>
</asp:GridView>
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>
After completion of aspx page design add the following namespaces in code behind

C# Code


using System;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.IO;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
After that write the following code in code behind


string strCon = "Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB";
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if (!IsPostBack)
{
BindGridviewData();
}
}
// Bind Gridview Data
private void BindGridviewData()
{
using (SqlConnection con=new SqlConnection(strCon))
{
using (SqlCommand cmd=new SqlCommand())
{
cmd.CommandText = "select * from FileInformation";
cmd.Connection = con;
con.Open();
gvDetails.DataSource = cmd.ExecuteReader();
gvDetails.DataBind();
con.Close();
}
}
}
// Save files to Folder and files path in database
protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
string filename = Path.GetFileName(fileUpload1.PostedFile.FileName);
Stream str = fileUpload1.PostedFile.InputStream;
BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(str);
Byte[] size = br.ReadBytes((int) str.Length);
using (SqlConnection con=new SqlConnection(strCon))
{
using (SqlCommand cmd=new SqlCommand())
{
cmd.CommandText = "insert into FileInformation(FileName,FileType,FileData) values(@Name,@Type,@Data)";
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", filename);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Type", "application/word");
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Data", size);
cmd.Connection =con;
con.Open();
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
con.Close();
BindGridviewData();
}
}
}
// This button click event is used to download files from gridview
protected void lnkDownload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
LinkButton lnkbtn = sender as LinkButton;
GridViewRow gvrow = lnkbtn.NamingContainer as GridViewRow;
int fileid = Convert.ToInt32(gvDetails.DataKeys[gvrow.RowIndex].Value.ToString());
string name, type;
using (SqlConnection con=new SqlConnection(strCon))
{
using (SqlCommand cmd=new SqlCommand())
{
cmd.CommandText = "select FileName, FileType, FileData from FileInformation where Id=@Id";
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@id", fileid);
cmd.Connection = con;
con.Open();
SqlDataReader dr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
if(dr.Read())
{
Response.ContentType = dr["FileType"].ToString();
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=\"" +dr["FileName"] + "\"");
Response.BinaryWrite((byte[])dr["FileData"]);
Response.End();
}
}
}
}
