I am writing a program to process data from a tab-delimited text file.
I am processing the information one line at a time. While processing input, I have noticed that lines that have a blank leading field are being shortened.
Name Address Zip Code
George 1 Small St 16709
Adam 9 Main St 15206
12 Jury Ln 90210
When the information is being read...
The lines will appear
George[Tab]1 Small St[Tab]16709
Adam[Tab]9 Main St[Tab]15206
12 Jury Ln[Tab]90210
Is there a way that I can force VB 6 to read the leading tab?
The reason is that I'm trying to use Split() to take the tabs out, and in the first process am creating a list of the zip codes by comparing strSplit(2).
