Is there a utility to parse a fixed length string?
Posted on 2000-05-12
I don't know if this is the right area to ask this question but here goes.
I don't have VB - but I guess I can get hold of compiled VB programmes that will run (I do have M$ Office and can run VBA).
I have a number of individual fixed length record strings (approx 7,500 chara's).
I don't have yet, but will have, the record mapping - I believe I'll need approx 50 fields from the string.
I'd like to map these fields onto several rows so that they look like a conventional ascii report within say 180 chara width.
Is there a VB utility in existance that allows a non VB programmer to specify the field locations from a long record string and allow some sort of mapping to an output file?
