Importtext Problem

Hello Everybody,

Here is an issue with importtext.

If you already have data in a database, and wish to append more data from a variable, the way to do so is with importtext

importtext t2, "Separator", tab(), "ExistingData", Append"

But did you know that if the variable value is null (i.e., “”), the importtext command will DELETE the data already in the database, leaving you with an empty database.

Workaround is obvious, need to check for a null value before issuing the inporttext command. But I think this should be done automaticall by PanX. By the way, openfile “+@t2” works correctly in this instance and as expected in Pan6.


Yeah, that’s definitely a bigtime bug.
