Can I use DFU to maintain VARCHAR fields in a table? If not, is there another easy utility that I can give users to add text to such a file?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If they are looking to add text to one field, I would write a simple program. If they are adding data to every field/column you may still want a program. The problem with a DFU is you could load bogus data to your table. You could enter invalid data formats, The text would have no validation rules using DFU.

    You may be able to, but I would not give it to your users. DFU is a powerful tool for manipulating data. We basically had to disable it because of regulations that the audit trail report can be deleted. If you are looking to let them add data, I would create a file template in Excel. Let them fill it out and then write a simple upload program to import the data.
