The [ Import dBase ] Environment

Any TextFile + csv dBase-Structure can be converted to the dB-Structure RadioFrequency is using.
The dBase Structure is a normal dB-text-Structure based on a " by Position " structure without Delimiters like the " , " comma.
The example below is reading the "Test Record" without delimiters. Reading " by Position ".
We copy a Field "from digit to digit" and assign the Field-Data to a Local Field. (8 Fields in total)
The first Field is always the "Frequency".
[ Test ] is translating only the " Test Record ". If the result is OK you [Translate] the whole external dBase.
You can save all Data/parameters with [Save Session] and Re-Open with [Load Session] x a automatic run.
There is a complete explanation file. Click on the 'bigger' [ H ]Label and open the Explanation.


Convert a text-dB / csv using a Delimiter. This Test-Record is using the " _ " underscore char.
As the Fields are the same as RadioFrequency is using the Local Field No attribution is straightforward. 1..8.
