Hi Folks,

I am reading a database file which in turning uses a field from that file to access another file.


Problem is, the field I get from the first read file is in binary format and thus outputs as zeros when using the debug tool. The key field in the second file is binary also (nevermind the 'why is that done' - I have no idea and I didnt write it).


How do I convert this mess and access the second file , which really has the information I need.
