TextPipeline and SQL

edited October 2008 in Datapipelines
I would like to create a report based on a large text file, grouping and
summing some of the data. Is it possible to use a TextPipeline and an SQL
statement together, without a database involved? (Sorry if this is a very
basic/obvious question, I'm still coming to grips with ReportBuilder).

Many thanks in advance - Andrew.

    The TextPipeline supports simple data traversal, there is no SQL engine

    You might be able use a Delphi add-on component that has an in memory
    dataset that can do something like that. I googled and found this...


    Another option would be to write code to traverse the TextPipeline and
    produce a second textfile that contains the summarized data. Then use a
    second TextPipeline for the report.
