The same text as was used in the previous section can be loaded in more than one way. This often happens, where there is a choice of data structure which can be captured from the same text. In this case you may wish to load multiple tables on the same text.
You can use this method where there is only one recdelim for each way of loading the data, but you want to load fields from a single text record into different tables. Distinct data sets need different schema files.
To follow are the contents of the schema file
supplied with the program:
# same input format as timport.sch
# name type tag default_val
field load1.Subject varchar(80) Subject
field load1.From varchar(40) From
field load1.Date date Date
field load1.Number long Number 0
field load2.Number long Number 0
field load2.File indirect -
field load2.Text varchar(1000) -
If you try this as written, you will see the two different views
created from the same data, in the tables
load2 which are imported at the same time.
Note that where the table is specified as part of the field, as
load2.Number", there is no need to specify
table as a separate keyword in the schema file.
