Presently we are using Paradox 9.0. We need to import a large text field
(>255char) into a memo field. It tells me that this has not been
implemented in Paradox 9.0. Can I do it in Paradox 10?
Can't import into memo fields.
You need to use a textstream to open the file, then read it and place into
the memo field with a tcursor.
That includes all Windows versions of Paradox.
"I woke up and was able to get myself out of bed.
Being that fortunate, what's to complain about?"
I've asked this question a couple of times with no luck in getting any
response...but I'll try again:
Has anyone had any luck (or experience) importing large blocks of text
into memo fields? I have about 1000 records worth of text, each record
is between 2-4000 characters. They are all variable in length. I'm
trying to import them into memo fields. I've used one of the import
tools found on PDX Informant BBS - however...it fails to bring in the
whole record. It dies around 1046 characters - apparently the limit
of a readline command.
Any help in this area would be appreciated.
