Force Open Setup to use specific delimiters

Post by Terry » Fri Jul 03, 2015 11:22 am

If you want to force the open setup to detect a specific file type (for example, a CSV file that is short in length and being detected as a label format file, or a delimited file with a set line length being detected as a fixed length file), then you can use the method below to force AccuZIP6 to recognize a file as a specific delimited type.

If you make this change, the software will no longer open any file that isn't the delimited type you specify!

Add these lines to the C:\Program Files (x86)\AccuZIP6 5.0\Field Maps\Field Maps.ini

[OPEN LIST]
DELIMITER=CHR(44)

You can use any ASCII value under “ASCII Table and Description”:
