Project Description

I want the coder to only use visual basic 6 (ONLY) as i will include minor modifications to it, and i would like it to have a simple program which will allow me to manuelly run everyday.
The program will check for a FAILED status in the line then process that line.
When the failed is found it will then process on that line and extract the fax number, failed status/HEADER->"result".
these two things are the only importance for this project.
Any lines containing success are skipped lines.

Once you have the results you need to loop through each one and check the db table and field for the fax number if it is found then change the flag column to value of -> "FAILED".
needing to know the result is important so it would be nice to have it also put in another field the same table called column name "RESULTINFO" --> "the_value_of_result_here".

The connection must be to SQL server, and i have included what the interface will look like and have included the text file.
The connection to the db must be through odbc and i must be able to change the information via the interface i have included.


the log is currently at 24,000 lines, i would like after it reads the lines and is done changing the flag in the db to rename the file to the current date with underscores example
[url removed, login to view]

I've included the LOG file too with 4-5 lines of real data that it will have.
The file is connected via a network path !
