    So, what's the deal? I'm using an .adp (please don't ask why or suggest
    i use an .mdb - this is a sore subject and i might snap) and i can't
    save a schema when exporting a table as fixed width .txt - furthermore,
    using the transfertext method without specifying a schema yeilds less
    than desirable results: seemingly picking and choosing which fields to
    export with no rhyme or reason. does anybody know more about this? does
    EVERYBODY know more about this? am i the only one? please help. thanks.
    - krep

    p.s. i suppose i could just stream the data into a .txt and force the
    column widths, but that's a cheesy cludge - THERE'S GOT TO BE A BETTER

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
