JDBC-ODBC - Tab Delimited Flat File Data
This section describes how to enter data in a flat text file as tab delimited columns.
To do further testing with the ODBC text file driver, I entered some data manually into two files in the directory connected to my DSN. My data is organized in columns with the tab character as the column delimiter.
ID FirstName LastName BirthDate AddressID 1 Christopher Kleinerman 11-Aug-1989 5 2 Rosmarie Kobylinski 01-Jul-1983 4 3 Alexander Mendiola 12-Apr-1977 3 4 Danielle Alexander 05-Nov-1979 2 5 R. Morgan Van Houten 09-Sep-1985 1
ID StreetName City 1 5 Baker Road Bellevue 2 25 Bay St. Hull 3 251 Main St. W. York 4 99 Wade Ave Paris 5 998 Forest Portland
As you can see, these two files contain data for two related tables. The AddressID in the User.txt file links to the Address.txt file.
