Hi Mahesh,

Hope you are doing well...!!

Please try below code :
in which I have declared one blob variable name filebody .
You need to assign you blob file body to filebody variable.
public class PDF_Class {

    public void insertpdf() {
        Contact a = new Contact();
        a.lastname = 'test-foram3';
        insert a;
        blob filebody; //set your filebody here
        String fname = 'Resume.pdf';
        ContentVersion conVer = new ContentVersion();
        conVer.ContentLocation = 'S'; // S specify this document is in SF, use E for external files
        conVer.PathOnClient = fname; // The files name, extension is very important here which will help the file in preview.
        conVer.Title = fname; // Display name of the files
        conVer.VersionData = filebody; // converting your binary string to Blog
        insert conVer;  
        // First get the content document Id from ContentVersion
        Id conDoc = [SELECT ContentDocumentId FROM ContentVersion WHERE Id =:conVer.Id].ContentDocumentId;
        //Create ContentDocumentLink
        ContentDocumentLink cDe = new ContentDocumentLink();
        cDe.ContentDocumentId = conDoc;
        cDe.LinkedEntityId = a.Id; // you can use objectId,GroupId etc
        cDe.ShareType = 'V'; // Inferred permission, checkout description of ContentDocumentLink object for more details
        cDe.Visibility = 'AllUsers';
        insert cDe;

Hi Rana,

I tried the below code,
when i am opening the file i am not able to load it,

 Attachment attach = new Attachment();
                                       Blob beforeblob = Blob.valueOf(euaBody);
                                       String paramvalue = EncodingUtil.base64Encode(beforeblob);
                                       System.debug(euaBody + ' is now encoded as: ' + paramvalue);
                                       Blob afterblob = EncodingUtil.base64Decode(paramvalue);
                                       System.debug(paramvalue + 'is now decoded as: ' + afterblob.toString());
                                       insert attach;

Can you suggest me what changes needs to be done?

Thanks and Regards

If you are uploading pdf then contentType must be application/pdf
I just want to know what is the type of euaBody ?? 
euaBody is encoded base 64 String?
What is the size of file body ??
Mahesh KGMahesh KG
yes, the contentType is application/pdf
the type of the euaBody is String
file size is 6mb
