I want to take a text file (ex: C:\Demo\emp.txt) containing code numbers and their cooresponding descriptions and open it up and parse out the text to different data fields, but I'm not familiar with how to do this with Delphi?????

Hi dpms,

Inter has made a tool for this some days ago. I can send it to you...

You might want to try Lex and Yacc for Turbo Pascal.  Its up to version 4.01 now and it is just like the Lex and Yacc on Linux.  If you are interested:


Lex builds the lexical analyzer while yacc builds a compiler to actually read the lexical tokens you created with lex.  You can also use them separately if you want.  

If you need more info, just write.
