SDU Tools: Converting between Base64 and Varbinary in T-SQL

In our free SDU Tools for developers and DBAs, we have added many tools that help to convert data between different types and formats when working with T-SQL.

In some recent consulting work, I needed to convert data from BizTalk messages into other formats. To help make this easy, I added a function that converts from the Base64 (used by Biztalk messages and other applications) into varbinary.

Not surprisingly, we called it Base64ToVarbinary. And for completeness, we also added the reverse function: VarbinaryToBase64.

In the main image above, you can see an example of them in use.

You can also see them in action here:
