Import/Export Text files in Paradox Application

A client has requested an ascii import/export capability just before the app
goes out the door!
I've used MS Access's built in import/export utilities... are there similar
tools for Paradox?
CSV and fixed length file capability would be great!

The TBachMove component can be used to move files form an ASCII file to a table.
Fixed length export doesn't need any definition but other operations require a
schema file with the same name as the ASCII file.  See the topic Text Driver in
BDE32.hlp.

Hi.

Try TKDBBackup component. URL: http://www.korzh.com . It allows
export/import tables to the TAB delimited text file. It full free and
contains source code, so you can easy modify it for supporting CSV format.

Paradox 7 & 8 have expert that will get you started on an Import routine. You
can then put them into a PUSHBUTON.

The export is a also as easy where you can create a PUSHBUTTON to export a
PARADOX table to a TEXT file.

If you need specific Help !! Send message to:
