Data Interchange Format (.DIF) UDF

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I had a need for processing data that came in .DIF files, so I put this UDF together to handle the files.

Hopefully, it will be of value to others here in the forums.

DifHandler reads data from a .DIF file to an array, or writes data from an array to a .DIF file.

I have also added support for the Microsoft mistake, and can read .DIF files generated by Excel.

You can download it from here:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/4z8m7kgqw7oi7e9/DifHandler.zip

Please let me know if there are any problems or improvements.

I have been finding that lots of applications do not adhere to the specs very well, so ...

Here is version 2, written to be a little more forgiving.  It will still set the appropriate @error value, but will still attempt to read the full DIF file, and return it in the array.
