Subj:   Spurious errors with FASTLOAD of VARTEXT data with non-standard delimiting char
 
From:   Cornelius Meade

I am finding that a strange thing happens when attempting to FASTLOAD vartext data using certain values as the field delimiting character. In this case, the ' '(cent sign) was used as a delimiting character. This works fine except that if one of the vartext fields in the file in question also contains a bracket (i.e. '[' or ']' ), this caused the fastload to terminate as if it were treating these characters as delimiters also. This problem does not occur when '|' is used as the delimiting character for the file in question. I have validated that this is the only difference between the two input datafiles. Anyone else run across this type of behavior before in a FASTLOAD session or know of an explanation?
