Build an database from Notepad files

Recommended Posts


Hello All,

I usually use excell to process my CDR files which are formatted in notepad. But I got a problem that when I need to process with a lot of CDR files, It took me so long and also make me crazy with them. So, anyone can help me build database from notepad files and just query data that I need to find ?

many thanks

No problem but you need to be way more explicit about what you need exactly.

Which data are in the files (are they Corel Draw ???), what do you want to query?, Etc.
