Hi there all,
the problems never end.
I have to move old DBase III plus - files , used in a Clipper/DOS programm
to pdx - files , so I can use the datas in a Delphi4 program.
I do this with a batchmove.
That works fine.
But now there are 2 problems :
1) after a batchmove I get all german special charakters (like ? , ?, ,
another charakter -> from ? to TM , and so on. What can I do ???
2) is it possible with batchmove to update a field only if required ?
example : there is a database with many different Article-no. and one field
the articles with same number. So if in the comparison field is the same
I can compare the different article-no using the comparison-no.
If I get a new database of articles, I have to update the old ones, but I
dont want to overwrite
a comparison-field where I filled in a comparison-no. Up to now, if there
comes in a new database, and I do the update with a batchmove, I allways
overwrite that comprison field.
Is it possible to make any exclusion for a field, if the value is <>' ' ,
or do I have to use another command than Batchmove, which is pretty fast.
All tries with a do-while-not-eof or similar things uses a lot of time a a
database size of more than 600.000 sentences.
Many thanks for every answer.
Have A Nice Day
