Go though the files below first and then message to let me know if you’ll be able to do this assignment. There are two data files(invent15 and stktake15) which couldn’t be attached so had to change it to .doc file,change the extension to .FIL before using it.
please refer to the Appendix 1 in the Main_assignment.doc file for the layout of the inventory file and the stocktake file. The length of the columns have been provided. If you follow the length required for the columns for the Inventory file, you will find that in column 8 you may need to allow 7 spaces so you don’t cut the whole date off, which will take you to no. 64 at the end of this column.
