Handling MS SQL BLOB/Varbinary

"Normal" interactions with MS SQL are pretty straightforward in Retool, and I appreciated that! :slight_smile:

However, interactions with some datatypes still require a few workaround steps which I feel could be abstracted to make them more accessible to the average user.

MS SQL BLOBS, or Varbinary, datatypes - typically used for storing things like images etc., are one such example where it seems like the process to store, update and retrieve is not as straightforward as the rest.

It would be good if Retool would consider looking at the common use cases for this and enhance the integration options with MS SQL to make things like saving and retrieving common file types easier (images would be a good start).

Thanks for considering!
