    structured files


    we have defined a structured binary file type using VB user defined structures
    (see below e.g.)

    will it be possible to read such files written with VB 6 in VB.NET?

    Thank you.

    Type type_file 'one file
    num_months_to_retain As Integer
    num_file_attributes As Integer
    num_file_conditions As Integer
    num_part_conditions As Integer
    num_test_variables As Integer
    num_skip As Integer
    data_type As Byte
    file_attributes() As String
    data() As single
    num_parts As Long
    file_format_eof As String
    End Type 'type_file

    Re: structured files


    I wouldn't count on it, but it's tough to say with .NET still unreleased.
    However, once the structure for vb.net "Types" is known, you should be able
    to write a .net wrapper around them pretty easily.
