    Are you referring to the x icon?

    For more context I believe you are referring to the following situation:

    - Source = BLOB Column… 
    - In combination with Form - Automatic Row Processing.

    And not Table APEX_APPLICATION_TEMP_FILES. Because with the latter it requires your own processing, which you would do you own file handling.

    This may be considered a potential bug, as the x should clear the blob column.

    Yes, thats correct, the x-icon.

    Indeed not the table APEX_APPLICATION_TEMP_FILES from wwv_flows_files.

    I have exactly the same problem.

    So, is it a bug? fix/workround? I am on APEX 23.2.1.
