Hi Bram,

How fast can you create FixedLength ASCII files with your components?

You could try to use
(That means that you can SELECT * FROM TB_ZIPCODE and IB will read
the info from a TXT file...

To use external files, I believe they must be on the same machine
as IB server. Then you can INSERT (with type casting) in a permanent
table. (Remove your indexes before massing insertions.)

This is the procedure I use to convert dBase or Paradox to IB.
(this will not work if you have MEMOs and alikes... :-(

Good Luck!
