Good Evening Monks. I thank all of your for your insight over the past few months and I've supported the Monestary by purchasing several items listed on Cafe Press.
My question is rather simple: I have several flat file databases and I would like to select a string which I already know how to do and that string is sent to a new file where strings from other files are merged to make one new string. For security purposes I would like to make it so the data from each file is unavailable.
File 1 Years
File 2 Makes
File 3 Models
Temp File would look like this:
2001 Ford Expedition
What I need to happen is some how commenting out the selected item from each file from being able to be selected again and once the temp file is deleted the comments would be removed. Anyone have an idea on how to accomplish this? I do not need code to select the strings or code to create a temp file with all the items listed that is already been coded. Just need direction to make the items unable to be selected. Another thought was removing the items from each file to the temp file then when the command is issued to delete the temp file the items would be placed back into their originating files? Thoughts? Thanks!
