How to import data from a text file
Using Import/Export Wizard,
the data from a text file can be imported into the database which is opened
in the program or exported from a database into a text file. This is a
very useful functionality, since almost all database programs, e-mail,
spreadsheet, and similar programs, have the Export functionality for saving
the data from the program in a text file.
BaseNow can display text files and enable manipulation with them in
an almost completely the same way as with any database. The folder on
a hard disk will be presented as a database, and all text files from the
folder as tables.
BaseNow uses ODBC technology for connection to text files. The video
demonstrates how in a few simple steps the data from a text file containing
a list of e-mail addresses can be transferred to the Mailing List database
in Access 2000 format. You can also see how to set the connection parameters
for text files using the Data
Link Properties window.
