I thought that was a real URL I could look at, but apparently it’s a dummy? I tried to look at it and got a message that the domain was for sale.
FYI, I haven’t received any email from you today.
I’m puzzled as to how this is simpler. If I understand what you are doing, you could just export the data from your database like this:
And import it into a different database like this:
Contacts = binarytotext(fileload("somefile.txt"))
Or maybe you are putting this on a web server, then
Contacts = binarytotext(url("http://some.com/../../somefile.txt"))
HOLD THE PHONE!!, your original code was:
binarytotext(fileload(vResponsePath + |Steve Middleton-3636378181.txt|))
What was in vResponsePath? Since you were using fileload(, I was assuming it was a path to a file on your local drive. But with your new example, I’m wondering – was it a URL to a web server? If so, the crash was probably from passing a URL to fileload(, that function is only for local files on your hard drive, and had nothing to do with JSON.
This example illustrates why it is so critical to post complete details when submitting a support question. When a key detail is held back, neither I or anyone else is going to be able to assist. And if you don’t understand what is going on, you probably don’t know what a key detail is, so it’s best to not hold anything back. Make sure there is no missing context. It will take longer to submit your post, perhaps much longer, but in the long run you’ll get your answer quicker with a lot less frustration for everyone. I rarely ask questions on Stack Overflow (a forum for professional programmers), but when I do, I’ll usually take hours to make sure that I’ve covered every detail needed for someone to assist. (And often in thinking so carefully about how to ask the question, I come up with the answer myself.)
