Variables And The Fix Recordlayout


Recommended Posts

Dear All,


Every workday I download text file which is created with fix recordlayout. These files contain date, product code, quantity etc in a row. For example date is stay in the file at the 1st character positon and its length is 8 characters and product code is stay at the 10 character position and its length is 10 characters.


I would like to ask to you how can I save the date and the product code into variables?


Thank you,

Use the Text File Begin Process and read them in line by line ot a variable then use the Variable Modify String to copy part of the variable to other variables.

Dear Cory,


Thank you very much for your help! It's working fine.
