Copy one record

I am processing a DBF file and wish to copy selected
records to another DBF file. I do not wish to use
AppendRecord and have to spell out all the fields like:

   File2.AppendRecord(File1Field1.AsString,
       File1Field2.AsFloat, .... etc);

File2 is created in the program using File1's structure.
Therefore to make my code more robust I can not use the
AppendRecord method as shown above.

In Pascal if two files had the same record structure I
could simply assign one to the other, and append it.

Try using BatchMove.  It appears to do what you want.

I don't think the Batchmove method will work,

but the BatchMove component looks like it should.

Try using Apollo database engine. (www.luxent.com)
It has a lot of cool functions like CopyToFile, Append, etc. (stuff that all dBASE programmers are used to)
