thanks I just hope it will work for DOS

I am right in thinking moving to SQLite would be a good move or should I stick to the fixed length files?

Return question: do you speak SQL (at all)?

yes I understand SQL a lot as I use it everyday in my Windows application

I am just sitting on the side of care as I have never done anything with SQL in DOS until recently I have been told you can
not do anything with SQL in DOS

No risk, no fun :-)

Full SQL on DOS: never heard of it (if it exists at all)
SQLite, AFAIK is a flat file implementation, may or may not work.

Why don't you ask the experts at SQLite ...

Return to “DOS”
