String to Type

P: 1
Hello all, I need some help here. I am using Visual Basic 6.0 (SP6).

Here's an example of the code I need:

Private Type PURCH_Record
Order as String * 6
Supplier as String * 6
Name as String * 30
TotalValue as String * 10
OrderedOn as string * 8
RequiredOn as string * 8
End Type

Dim sLine as String
Dim rPURCH as PURCH_Record

Open "C:\TEXT.txt" For Input As # 1
Line Input #1, sLine

Now I want to copy the content of sLine into rPURCH... A simple

rPURCH = sLine

does not work. I tried working with

Call CopyMemory(rPURCH, sLine, len(rPURCH))

it does not work either. I know I could do it field by field using the mid() function, but I got several types of record each containing several fields. It sounds to me that there is a better way of doing that.

Thanks in advance.
