Electronically burst a PRN file that contains 50 reports.
Posted on 2001-06-09
Can VB be used to create a program to burst a PRN file containing 50 reports? Is there a better way to do this?
The program would start at the first line of the file. It would store the first line and then proceed to the first line of the next page and compare it to the first line on the previous page. When the first line of the page changes a new report has started. All subsequent pages would be cut and pasted to a new file and given a file name using the first line of the page. The program would then continue using the new first line of the file. This would continue until the end of the file has been reached.
