How to convert a db to txt

How to convert a db to txt
Views: 0
In Forefront Server Security Administrator it's possible to make an export of the incidents.mdb (Access Database). This is working fine. However, I need to make a export on a regular basis so I would like to make a script of that.

What is the easiest way to convert.export an Access DB to a Text File?.
Can it be done by using VB-script, commandline or Powershell

Do not use Macros to perform the conversion (i.e. TransferText)

Let us say, I have a table myTable with a single field, FileName , the values of which are unique.
Eg:
FileName
a.txt
b.txt

I have a folder, say myFolder, which contains these files. Some of the files are missing in this folder.
Existing Files in Folder
a.txt
b.txt
f.txt

Missing Files in Folder
c.txt
d.txt
e.txt

I want to run a query, which will give me the below results :

FileName Existing
a.txt Yes
b.txt Yes
c.txt No
d.txt No

Import txt files based on date

Here is the situation:

I want to import 3 recent txt files (based on date and time) to an access table. Each txt file is to be imported to it's table.

These txt files are located in a directory which is populated everyday with new txt files, hence the txt files keep changing.

A file is named as "Locations20120315.TXT" where 20120315 represents March 15, 2012.

How can I achieve this by click on a button
 

Creating txt file by usage of exe program

Preview
I need to find a way to read in my files.

There's a program .exe that reads c-code to convert binary data to normal data creating a txt file. Is there a way to call this from access and vba?

I've been doing some googling and some freestyling and came up with this:

Shell("C:\Users\SSS787\ReadLog_new\ReadLog.exe, &00000023.D03 \s > C:\Users\SSS787\ReadLog_new\slasken.txt")

Im trying to use the *.exe program and the file *.D03 to create the txt file.
 

Import from .CSV or .TXT

Preview
I am working on a project which for some task has to deal with a legacy application accepting input only in the form of .MAT (Microsoft Access Table) files. I haven't worked with MS Access in the past.

The code that I have written provides output in the form of a .CSV or .TXT (tab-delimited file) and this becomes input to the legacy application which needs input in the form of a .MAT file only. Is there a way to convert .CSV/.TXT file in .MAT format? In the longer run, I will have to perform this step for a few thousand iterations, so any pointers to sample scripts or documentation that could simplify this case (a simple .CSV/.TXT to .MAT conversion) would be of great
 

Batch import

I have a project that I am working on that is taking information off of a word doc (which I do by converting to txt and importing)

My supervisor, who knows I don't know crap about VB says that doing each doc is too much work and wants to batch the doc in the morning when he gets in.

Is there any way to write a program that will take all the doc files in a folder and convert them to txt files and then import them into a database
 

Batch import .txt

I'm looking for help here and this is the problem. I have thousands of .txt file. Each .txt contains data of one person and there're multiple records/rows of this person in the .txt. The .txt files are tab separate delimited. 1. How do I import these .txt files into tables in Access? I don't want to do > File > Import a thousand times. 2. My goal is to stack these .txt files into one huge file that contains everyone's data. This should be a simple query if I have the tables (imported from .txt) linked to the primary key. Again, I don't want to set the primary key in each table and I don't want to draw the relationship lines a thousand times. Is there a way to do it? Any thought would be appreciated. Many thanks, Helena
