How to print a large text file

Postby dmajkic » Wed Nov 04, 2015 2:31 pm

Old app have a number of prepared plain text reports. These are saved to files on local user disk.

What is the best way to print such file?

Tried with memo field, but it is extremly slow to load and show.
Crosstab is significantly faster, but it mess with dispaly formating.

I cant load lines and send them as dataset, as FRX only accepts DBF and Array.

Only thing left is to load file in memory array, and then print it as array dataset to FR.
Is there a way to do that without loading whole file in memory?
