Out of space using GetString?

 Out of space using GetString?


Here's the problem...I am extracting data from an SQLBase database
(EZCAP)...for the purpose of putting it into SQLServer 7.0....

Tried using DTS, but get too many errors...

Anyway, the getstring mthod works well up to about 1 Million records...then
I get a message that I'm out of space, which I have plenty of...

I started having issues at about 600,000...increased the paging file size...

Then noticed that it took about 2 - 21/2 minutes tio close the
connection...I believe it is merely closing out the cache....

Tried putting a cachesize property on the recordset.  Was never able to find
out if it worked...Could hold the F8 key down all day, but as soon as I let
it go....I get a type mismatch error, which I thinks means the local cache
isn't getting refilled...

Using the rdo getclipstring method is more stable, but quite a bit
slower(hard to imagine - as it has always seemed quicker)...

Below is the code.  Thanks in advance for any help and guidance..

I have tried opening and closing the text file with no effect.

   varOutput = ""

'start looping through te recordset

 Do While Not rst.EOF

      varOutput = rst.GetString(, 50, , Chr(10), "Null")

  rcount = rcount + 50

  If rcount Mod 10000 = 0 Then

   Debug.Print rcount & "  " & Format(Now() - datTime1, "hh:nn:ss")
  End If

  'added doevents to see if it helped

 A.WriteLine CStr(varOutput)
 'tried resetting the variable
 varOutput = ""

Set rst.ActiveConnection = Nothing
Set cnn1 = Nothing

End Sub
