Export Data to ISAM Databases

Use this code to get data out to different formats without requiring a complete copy of the DBMS on the user machine. Create a new project with a command button, and copy this code into the button’s Click event:

 Dim db As DatabaseSet db = Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase _	(App.Path & "iblio.mdb")' commented out syntax line followed by ' working example'	db.Execute "SELECT tbl.fields INTO '		[dbms type; DATABASE=path].[unqualified '		file name] FROM [table or tables]"db.Execute "Select * into [dBASE III; 	DATABASE=" & "C:My Documents].	[testa] FROM [authors]

By using the brackets and the dot operator, you get a completely proper output in the ISAM database type of your choice. Also, if you choose Text as the database type, the statement creates a SCHEMA.INI for you automatically, or adds a new section for your new data file to a SCHEMA.INI already in the path folder.
You can do any kind of export the client wants without using a DBMS on the machine. This makes your life easier when you notice that some users running Word 97 have problems mail-merging with text files you originally created with Write# and Print# methods.
