    It means that each record in the test file is the same length. Many of these files also have data in fixed positions in the file.<BR><BR>Yes, you can create them notepade. But, make sure you use a "true" font such as Lucida Console or System. Otherwise, the positions you think you put them in won&#039;t be represented in notepad correctly.<BR><BR>This may be helpful to you...<BR><BR>
