Good morning folks...I have a pseudo concept question. I have a trio of unix text files that I need to load into an Access database, and then do a comparison for matches (knowing one field will never match).
My original idea was to create a VB application to parse the delimited text (open file, place data into specific fields within a table for each file) and then automatically run a comparison query between the separate tables reporting a count of the matching fields
In order to do this I was thinking a four button app, one button for parsing each file into a table, then one button to run the comparison query (perhaps a fifth for creating the database)
Thoughts? Constructive criticisms? Would this better be done in one of the C family languages?
