Changing data in a Tab Delimited text files
Posted on 2004-08-01
I have a tab delimited text file that contains 26 fields and anywhere from 1 upwards rows.
The rows can contain information in all 26 fields or only the first field.
The sixth field is currently empty (Class). If the first column contains TRNS or SPL I need to put information into the sixth field and copy this to a new tab delimited text file (or update the original).
I have been able to read the test file into a recordset, however this recordset will not allow me to update field (5). I have also writen script to write from the first recordset toa new tab delimited file. Can some one tell me how when writing to the new file, I will be able to add information to field 5 of the recordset if the above requirements are met.
