Android Question (-: SOLVED :-) Storing Lists or dynamically sized types in SQL DDB

I've been trying to store a list as a blob in a database, but when I retrieve it I can't use the data as a list anymore. OK so that was a bit ambitious now that I think about it.

I'd just like to double check that I am right on that before I completely change everything - There is no way I can save a list (or a map) within a SQL ddb and continue to use it as a list (or map) again after retrieving it, is that right?

Thanks

Thanks, I've used KVS in other apps, but need a relational DDB for this one as the patient database is more complex and it seemed wrong to split the two.

Ah so KVS works with lists and custom data types? I'll have a look at how, thanks.

EDIT* I just did have a look. Now why didn't I think to look at that when the nightmare began! Thanks, I think I'll convert my code to use your method when I get the time.
