I am trying to write an ArcPy script tool that will store a point object in a BLOB field that I have created. I don't know if that is even possible. If it is, how do I do it, and how can I then retrieve and update that point later? It is probably possible to do it through ArcObjects (which I would rather do), but I am restricted to an arcpy script tool by client specs. I am rather new at the arcpy thing (much more comfortable with ArcObjects).
I should ask: is there a way to access ArcObjects natively from within a script tool, like the ThisDocument hook that was available in VBA? If so, I could justify using ArcObjects, as long as I didn't have to go through comtypes (which is what I usually do with standalone Python automation scripts).
Thank you all for your help.
