Summary

Importing large file

Description of the issue

I'm trying to create a database from an initial text file that is about 86MB. I need to parse the text file into about 7000 records. I'm trying to start by getting the file into a global field, but FM crashes with either paste or when I try a plugin from Troi (TrFile-ContentsDialog). The notes regarding the plugin say you can read up to 2GB and FM says a field can hold 1GB, so I don't see why FM crashes. I don't know of another way to read this file and get it parsed into records. FM provides no messages indicating an error state, but just bails. I've sent the OS report to Apple.
