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.

There's a utility called AOTXPORT in the Zen 2 toolkit that will convert 'em back and forth. http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/2808.html  Don't know if it would work with modern ZEN.

Here's a link to a CoolSolutions tool - a perl script to build an AXT from a directory structure.  http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/1356.html
and another app to do the same: http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/1635.html

I don't see anything on developernet for AOT/AXT, either API's or documentation.  Maybe you can find what I can't...
