COMMA DELIMITER FILE
Posted on 2001-06-19
Experts only please,
I don't want any urls sent, code please.
this is the problem
I have a comma delimited file with a header,
the header always changes or can change which then causes a problem when i go to read the body
the program works if the header remains the same delimiter.
but if it isnt it screws up
I want to ignore the first line of the text file and then continue to read the rest.
this is how i do it at the moment.
open "c:\filename.txt" for input as #1
do while not eof(1)
how do i jump over the first line (Header)
if i could solve this it wouldnt matter how long or short the head was it wouldnt affect the rest of the file when reading in from the file
