With AccuZIP6 version 5.04.06 (released October 2, 2009) or greater, we've added a new feature which allows you to set the default Delimiter that AccuZIP6 5.0 will use to Import data. So if your database is a pipe delimited file but AccuZIP6 believes it's a fixed length or comma delimited text file, you now have the ability to override AccuZIP6's choice:

1. Download the fieldmaps.zip file and extract it into the C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 5.0\Field Maps\ folder.

2. The software will look at this file and the DELIMITER= setting to determine what character is used as the Delimiter for each field.

3. If the software sees a value for DELIMITER, it will not check for any other delimiter.

4. You can enter the delimiter as a value or as a reference, i.e., DELIMITER=| or the CHR equivalent, DELIMITER=CHR(124)
