How to deal with binary column types?

I have a rowversion type of column in Azure SQL DB, which is semantically equivalent to binary(8)

When I display it in a powerapps text box it shows some letters, 12 of them.

How can I then patch this to another table with a binary(8) type column?

When I try a straight patch, it gives an error: "Value myst be at most 8 characters in length"

I thought that binary column types cannot be recognized and  was still not supported in powerapps?

Hi @Leo09, I can see the data, but it is rendered as a string.  I am using Azure SQL DB
