The GET file statement reads data from a file by bytes or TYPE variable records.

Syntax: GET #filenumber%, [location], variable_value

  • File number is the number of the file OPEN AS statement.
  • The byte or record location is the byte in a BINARY file or the record in a RANDOM file.
  • Location can be omitted if the GETs are consecutive or when creating a new file.
  • The variable value is any string or number type or a TYPE or FIELD variable.

Example: Using a TYPE record variable to read a record.

OPEN file$ FOR RANDOM as #1 LEN = LEN(Contact)
IF record% <= LOF(1) \ LEN(Contact) THEN GET #1, record%, Contact

Note: The Contact record contains all of the DOT variable types listed in the TYPE.
