Hello Forum Members:

Question How can automate the conversion of the following ficticous RAW DATABASE RECORD (with spaces & tabs) to a clean COMMA DELIMITED record, without having to resort to doing it MANUALLY?

    Dick Hxxx KIA 12xx NE 9xth St Vancouver, WA 98665 3XX0-XXX-XXXX dealership

NOTE: Spaces and tabs have been REMOVED by the forum WYSIWYG editor (can provide via email).


Thank you in advance for a prompt and detailed response.

Alan

One problem may be whether or not you allowed fixed length for name etc. However, I'm thinking in terms of a possible approach using "CSVed", a neat little freeware CSV program. You can either look that up for yourself and consider possibilities, or PM me for a temp email address to send, and I'll see what I can perhaps do with it. You need not send the entire listing. A few records will do to see if it works.

David.
