Get to learn Visual Basic .NET

Postby pa3lsvt » Wed Jul 28, 2004 2:01 pm

Here's the problem:

Plain text CSV file out of industrial machine, filled with data (mode timers, parts counters, etc.). I'm going to parse it, stick all the data in a huge object and then present it for the Corporate DB guy to upload to the main data server.

Then, later, I SQL what I want out of the DB and put it on a pretty report with graphs and formatting using Crystal Reports.

My point is that I'm using Visual Basic for the first time - I've done some serious programming with VBA for Excel 97/2000, so I at least know the basics.

It should be interesting - I bet the IS guy is going to be surprised at how fast I pick it up. :)

You'll probably want to find some way to access the data a bit at a time. Depending on the size of the data being thrown into a variable, it might bog down the system if too large.
