"Help finding/adding up file size..."

Post #302166845 by HPAVC on Wednesday 13th of February 2008 01:26:23 AM

I read this and think "oh how I have been there" ... its very hard to help without seeing some data obviously. But firstly, when I used to do this type of thing I found it somewhat easy on the stomach to transform the data into XML, hit it against a DTD and then export it in a loading friendly format in what ever discrete manner you need (the multiple batches for large accounts).

But sure you could loop through the file, make a file for each account, then loop through each account file and make them conform to your loader friendly size. Perl to the rescue imo.
