Carriage Return Adding
AppleWorks data bases may be created from text files if each "category" entry
is demarcated with a carriage return. I have found this feature to be very
useful when converting a text listing of names and addresses to a data based
format. Unfortunately, text downloads don't contain the needed CR's and it is
a pain to use a word processor to format a large file.
CR.ADDER is a slow basic program which will replace the second of two
consecutive spaces within a text file with a CR. Usually, the original text
file needs dressing up on the word processor to assure that the start of the
file will contain the first category entry. Print, using your word processor,
the file to disk as a text file. Run CR.ADDER and a modified file will be
saved as name.CRA. AppleWorks can now be used to create a database from this
file if you correctly definine the number of categories per record.
