AFAIK TSdfDataSet is a (Comma/tab/?) seperated file and TFixedFormatDataSet is a fixed width file where all the records are the same length whether theres data or not.

SDF Sample : Name,Surname,Tell,e_mail
                Rec = "Piet,Pompies,,piet@pompies.net"
Fixed Sample :  Name = 15 chars; Surname = 15 chars; Tell = 10 chars; e_mail = 20 chars;
                Rec = "Piet           Pompies                  piet@pompies.net    "
Hope it helps

Sorry I forgot to put the Code tags  :oops: ?
The Fixed Sample Rec should look like :
Code: [Select]

Rec = "Piet           Pompies                  piet@pompies.net    "
