Parsing text in VB6
Posted on 2003-11-20
I'm new to VB and need a suggestion about how to parse this text file.
I'm using VB6.
The text file has multiple records,
Each record begins with "GIGISA"
The record has many fields with different names and formats but
each field ends with a Tilde ~
each field element is seperated by astricks "*"
The fields that show city state and Zip looks like this:
The record is not carriage returned, it all runs together.
Someone mentioned to me I may want to use a Regular expression. Is that a good idea in this situation?
