Column Settings

The Column Settings page is only used for text files that have fixed width columns.

The vertical blue lines are added by clicking the left mouse button over the grid, and are used to separate fields (such as first name, last name, city, etc.). Double clicking results in the removal of the line. Lines can also be dragged by holding the left mouse button down and moving the mouse.

Hints:Pay extra attention to the location of column breaks when working with fixed width columns that have field names in the first row (see Field Name Row in the Data Formats page). The location of the column breaks may need to vary, depending on length of field names in the first row. If this is the case, the easiest way to work with them is as follows:

1.Go back to the Data Formats page and set the First Row Data value to '1'.

2.Return to this page and set the column breaks.

3.Return to the Data Formats page and reset the First Row Data value.
