Hi there....

I've got a slight problem here. When i use an ascii table there is only one field displayed. How is an ascii database file formatted?
How hard is it to convert an ascii record like (1000,"Johnson",14,3,"Boehoehoe" into a dbase file format.
I am using Delphi 2.0

Greetings in advance,
Marcel

Drop two TTables/TDatasources on a form. For one TTable set the TableType to ttASCII, for the second set it to ttDBase.
Then use the batchmove component to copy the records.
I used this once to convert a DB app and it worked for me...
