Data control and text files

By BHunkus ·
I am writing a data entry/update program in VB6 to create and allow the update of a comma delimited text file to be downloaded to an IBM System 36 for processing. I have the program basically written and working using the data control, bound combo boxes, text boxes, etc. to display and update the created file. When I click the next record arrow on the data control to save changes and move to the next record, (which as I understand it, that's what it's supposed to do), I get an error saying "Updating data in a linked table is not supported by this ISAM." When I click on help, all it says is that I'm trying to save a blank field to a database, which I'm not. I can not find any documentation or help whatsoever on using the data control (or the ADO data control for that matter) specifically with a text file, only that either one is supposed to work effortlessly with text files! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Not the answer I wanted to hear, but it did answer my question. Thanks, maybe I'll just build the application in Access.
