I attempted this question earlier but the answer was not what I was looking for.
My experience is somewhat limited In Crystal Developer.
My specs are that I need to create a fixed-length flat file, 500 bytes.
I am to use Crystal to select the databse fields, place them on a report and then export that report to this flat file.
I have no trouble with any of that EXCEPT the fixed length feauture.
If I wish for the flat file to look like
"field1 field2 field3 "
(spaces between fields and padded at end)
how do I accomplish this in Crystal (using a formula)?????
The output record layout is attached. The fixed-file layout is a requirement of the State, to whom this file is being sent.
Thank you VERy much
