Re: InstantDB: single quotes in imported data


Hi David

You need to modify "import_format.txt" so that the format line reads:

Format=TabDelimited STRICT

InstantDB will use the STRICT keyword to tell it that quotes do not 
delimit string constants and will "strictly" follow the tab character 
as the column delimiter.

See

http://instantdb.enhydra.org/software/documentation/import.html#Importin
g-Data-from-Text-Files

for an explanation of why it does this.

Subject: InstantDB: single quotes in imported data

> ScriptTool is choking on single quotes when I do an import from
