Save image to sql.

Hello, lately I have been triying to create a code to upload an image into my sql database from visual cobol 2012. I have done this in C# with 

byte[] image
object o = Clipboard.GetDataObject().GetData("Bitmap");
if (o != null)
{
pictureBox.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage;
pictureBox.Image = (Image)o;
}

using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream())
{
pictureBox.Image.Save(ms, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);
image = ms.ToArray();
}

Im not sure how I can do " pictureBox.Image = (Image)o;"  in visual cobol, since im stuck there I haven't tried to code the rest but I don't think that would be any problem.

How can I manage to do this task in visual cobol?
