I am using .Net VB Express 2005.
I need to know how I can open a Random Access file to read and write back my legacy data written with QBASIC(Microsoft)
I managed to use FileGet and was able to view only the normal string data - how do i read / edit and re-write the data from one record when the data is stored with :-
MKi$ (2 bit) Mks$(4 bit) and Mkd$(8 bit) and normal strings
In Qbasic you used the cvi, cvs and cvd functions to read the data. How can these be implemented with .Net Vb
Please supply code snippets of how the file is open and records read /edited and written back in the same format.
Assume in your eaxmpales that the record size length is 20 with the fields 2 is mki$, 4 is mks$, 8 is mkd$ and 6 is a normal string.
Thanks in Advance.
