# Cold Fusion String Search In Text File and insert in to database!

hi,

im trying to search in text file from CFM  and insert in to database for example

1st Text File:

True

OR

False

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2nd  Text File :

"A blog (a blend of the term web log)[1] is a type of website or part of a website supposed to be updated with new content from time to time. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
Although not a must, but most good quality blogs are interactive, allowing visitors to leave comments and even message each other via widgets on the blogs and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites."

Two Thing i have to do.

: 1
I'll check in 1st file "True" or "False"  then  i'll insert in to database with date and time.

: 2
i'll start reading text file from start where ever  i'll get word "website" i'll insert in to database with location & total.

I assume you want to search through text file,the way to go would be to make a CFcollection of all the text files.and search it through verity search.
Once you retreive the file through you can have corresponding updates in data base...

If you mean the 1st file contains only the word true or false, simply read the contents with cffile (or FileRead for CF9+). Parse the result and insert  it into your db.

*Note: I'm assuming "status" is a BIT ie boolean column. Change as needed.
<cffile action = "read" file="c:\path\to\yourfile.txt" variable="content">
<cfif trim(content) eq "true">
<cfset status = true>
<cfelse>
<cfset status = false>
</cfif>
<cfquery ...>
INSERT INTO YourTable ( BitStatusColumn, DateTimeStamp )
VALUES (
<cfqueryparam value="#status#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_bit">
, <cfqueryparam value="#now()#" cfsqltype="cf_sql_timestamp">
)
</cfquery>


> i'll insert in to database with location & total.
What do you mean by location?
