I just have to ask if anyone has run into this and what you did about it.

The data is ancient format called jBase which stores data in a very archaic manner which allows end of file markers Hex 1A or SUB characters , printer commands, you name it to infest these files. Of course, Dataflex sees it as an end of file and lops off the rest. There must be a way to read blocks or something, replace any characters in the line or block and rewrite that block. I'll eventually figure it out I suppose but thought it might be easier to start by asking all you pros out there first.

I can open the file in Notepad++ and search and replace with a space but I'm trying to avoid that so it can be automated.
