Creating a Fixed width Flat File from an rs
Posted on 1998-10-06
I have just been assigned a little project which I haven't experinced yet and was looking for some ideas. I need to take some files (could be excel, csv etc) proabably import them to a db and from a recordset map them to a 200 column fixed witdth file, ie at 1-6 field A, 7-10 field B, 11-17 field C, etc.
Has anyone ever done this before? If so how do I code for the fixed width fields when creating an ASCII text file.
Thanks in advance.
