Need help with document linecounts
Posted on 2011-10-27
We have an existing system done in C#.net using SQL Server 2005 as database. We have no way of updating that existing app.
Database has a blob col. Its a word document file. Now in the database there's a linecount col wherein the computation is
Character with Space / 65 = Linecount.
Now there's a new demand called VBC = Visible Black Character wherein spaces are not included only those characters typed in meaning Character without spaces.
VBC count is not included in the database. And I'm creating an app in VB6 that will need that VBC.
How can i use the existing database and get VBC to each document without making the app slow?
Any input guys is greatly appreciated.
