code to convert aot to atx format
Posted on 2005-03-21
I have been expanding a utility based on the NWDir ActiveX control and while I have had a great deal of sucess I am having a difficult time obtaining *some* fields. I understand that I need to use SaveFieldValueToFile for NWStream type fieldsa and then read it back into memory ( I am writing to Jet database for reporting purposes the Novell tolls s^&*) and that is working just fine except App"Macros actually writes the data to file in AOT format and if I could find a way to convert to ATX format I could simply use my INI file class (left over from an old project) to simply read the pieces back in. I have searched on Novell and around on the net but can not find a converter. Anyone know of a way to either convert AOT to AXT programatically or is there a way to get the field data in a human readable format, heck I would even go for the explaination of AOT format and write my own converter.
