Why can't I get a good answer to this question.
I am importing a fixed text file that contains null characters. Some
records begin with nulls. This seems to be a big problem with PDOX.
When a record is read PDOX think the null(00) is the end of the
record. All documentation that I have read does not address this
issue. When the null is at the beginning of a record PDOX return an
error and aborts. I had to write a DELPHI program to scan the files
that I am importing and convert all the null to spaces. If anybody
can help me on this issue I would appreciate it. Forget about calling
I tried to call Borland and the guy on the phone didn't know %$&*#.
Get this. I told him to create a text file with nulls and then try to
view it. He couldn't create the text file so I sent him one. Keep in
mind $2.00 a minute while this is happening. I sent him a file with
ten records with to of the records including nulls. First he goes
into notepad and deletes all the records without nulls and saves it.
He then informs me that he had no problem importing it and that I was
doing something wrong. Maybe he was able to import it because when
you open the text file in notepad, notepad does not recognize nulls so
the file he saved and imported no longer had nulls. Then I told hime
to use word to crop the file. After he crops the file he tells me he
can't import the file at all. Another DUH he saved the file as a word
I hung up without an answer and out a couple bucks.
