I have just watched and executed my own version of the youtube available video 'Getting Started with Alpha 5 V11' with Dave McCormick, but I am using a trial of version 12, or Alpha Anywhere. I used a Mysql db and things worked fine in the example, except that the 'Blob' data type did not display. In 'Design' mode under the 'Fields' option the Alpha 5 application interpreted the mysql blob data type as an image. How do I get the blob data to display it's text? The blob field in this case holds large chunks of text.
