Using Fields Object with GetChunk

What is the fields object of the GetChunk method? I am trying to access a large (several meg) flat fixed record (160 ascii bytes per record) database and I thought the only way is the GetChunk method but I don't know what the fields object is or how to specify it.

Typically, the GetChunk method is used on the Fields object like this:

String = Fields(1).GetChunk

The Fields object is just all the different fields on a particular table. If the table you opened was named Customer, you would do like this:

String = Customer.Fields(1).GetChunk

The 1 (one) is the field number. You can also specify fields by name.
