Import .txt to Pdox

I'm trying to import an ascii text file to a Pdox table.  I've set up a schema file for the .txt file and am using batchmove to populate the Pdox table.  Each line of my .txt file is around 160 characters (so several fields in the schema file have an offset value greater than 99) however the schema file seems to accept a max offset value of only 99.  After the procedure executes, my Pdox table only has values for the fields that had an offset of 99 or less.  I know there are other ways to accomplish this like parsing the line, but I want to use batchmove.  Is there any way to get the procedure to recognize offsets greater than 99?  By the way I am using Builder C++ but is should be the same in Delphi.

You could try using DBCvt (find it on the Delpi Super Site,
sunsite.icm.edu.pl), but I think it is for Delphi 2.0 only at
this stage
I have written a "C" program that does exactly
above except it imports into a DBase Table
It is available on the net at
http://www.ecn.net.au/~rgilland/burns.html

as a file named "Report.zip" It can even accept multiline data
for each record.
