Text Wizard

The Text Wizard enables you to easily define text file layout for ANSI text data for use with the Scribe/DataDirect text file driver. The output of the wizard is a properly defined QETXT.INI file. The result of this is that the user defines a text file as a table. See Text Wizard Step 3 for more information.

Note: The Text Wizard can only accept ANSI data. To create a text connection with Unicode data, use the Unicode Text Adapter. See Connecting to a Text Source for more information about determining which text connector to use.

The Text Wizard requires the Scribe/DataDirect driver.
