I have a requirement wherein i need to edit and save word documents and associate them with records in Oracle database table. My question is what are the pros and cons of storing the doc as a BLOB field in the database Vs. storing it in the file system as a word document and associating it through another table that links the rec to the location of the document.

1) If you use IFS, the document is part of the database and can be backedup as part of DB

2) Other than that, I personally don't see any other advantage
