Append from text file & SQL Truncate Table.

I am accessing a dbase .dbf through ODBC. Need to do the following:

1. Append from non-delimited ascii text to my CDatabase.

2. In SQL there is a TRUNCATE TABLE command. Can this command be run under ODBC?

Thank You

Still need the following:

1. Append from non-delimited ascii text to my CDatabase.

2. Other opinions on: In SQL there is a TRUNCATE TABLE command. Can this command be run under ODBC? DELETE FROM is so slow!

Thank You
