Work with CSV Files



The work with CSV files command suite is designed to make importing CSV files from another source as simple as slicing a cake.  This tool has saved my bacon on many an occasion and has been updated as new requirements have come along.  I first wrote it back in 1998 to handle data input for a (now defunct) telecoms company in Scotland.

It has the ability to analyze an existing file, create an output database file and a standalone program to process it.

Usage Instructions

To get going with the command enter


 You are then presented with a CSV set, press F6 for new and enter some details

...full instructions to follow (when I get a chance).


Note that there is a problem compiling the program, it will fail with a bizare error.  Until some time I get around to sorting it, you will have to compile the resultant program outside of this tool (it works fine then)
