Unanswered: Any DOS program to convert MDB to TXT ?
Any expert knows how to convert a .MDB file to a .TXT file in dos mode ? (or convert .MDB to .DBF)
Because I have a batch daily job in dos mode to do many tasks (ftp between UNIX and Windows, convert file formats....), I need a program to automatically convert .MDB to .TXT instead of manually doing it everyday.
Someone told me even if I wrote a VB program, it could not run in DOS but only Windows. I don't know. If anybody has VB or other programs to achieve this, please kindly share with me !
If I complete the VB source codes and make them into a .EXE file, is it executable in DOS mode ? Because system will start my daily.bat in DOS to do many things including converting .MDB to .TXT, and do some other things further based on these .TXT files.
In fact I have not yet developed such a program because my PC has problems now.
My first idea about this issue is to create a VB progarm (not Access) to read a .MDB file and write a .TXT file. If it can only run under Windows, then I'll also have to adjust the sequence of current tasks in DOS batch.
