    Re-read an imported file?



    Well, better question would be whether it makes any sense. Repeating
    MvIMPORT is certainly no problem, but it is rather inefficient and slow. I
    cannot imagine any reason for importing the same file in the same scrip more
    than once.

    I'd tell that better would be parsing the needed information from the file
    in a single pass, or storing the MvImported file into a variable, or into a
    database. Instead of the slow MvImporting it again, you would then only
    parse the data already available in the variable (or database)

    Just an FYI - yes, it can be done.
    Good ol' MvWhile.

    Simple question of memory vs. speed. At 4k, I'd go the variable
    route. You could also build an array as you import, as that may make
    it easier to parse through on a line by line basis.
