Importing text into memo field

Importing text into memo field

Post by Len Hockle » Thu, 01 May 2003 05:04:23

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.

1. HELP! - importing text to memo fields

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 - 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.
