Hi..

I just downloaded the exam material yester.. mine is slightly different from the rest as the interface file given is DBAccess instead of DBMain.

I was given a file with a db extension. When i try to parse it using RandomAccessFile and start reading from the 70 bytes onwards, i realise the delimiter that separate each record is two square boxes. Has anyone encounter that?

read the specifications... The file isn't plain text.
