Changing the RDW

Postby socker_dad » Fri Aug 26, 2022 2:54 am

I'm working on a VB file and the changes involve changing the record length. In the online product, I can manually change each record.....but this not very viable where more than a few hundred records are involved. I'm reading the manuals, but haven't come across anything that sounds correct.

Write a program in the language of your choice to read in each record, set the new length, and write the record to a new data set.
