My question is pretty basic, i hope. Basically, what i have is an extremely large text file, which acts as a flat file database... in essence.
Text file formatting looks like this:
CLIENT CODE | CLIENT NAME| CLIENT ADDRESS 1 ...
This pattern goes on for about 23 fields, including one field per line, and there is about 1100 records in the "flat file database at the moment". My thinking was to use the strtok function, and extract the fields into aarays, for the full 1100 records. so that wrap some functions around it like get next record... etc.
what i need to know is, does anyone know of a fast, and efficient way to extract this data, from the delimited text file, and basically place the data into my gui line by line, as requested by the button click events. If it helps, i am using BCB 6 Professional.
Thankyou for any help
