I need to load some data into Access database which is in a text format, and I wanted to write a VBA module which will parse the text file and store the data into the database.  But I can't figure out how to access a text file from a VBA module.  Any help would very much be appreciated

Hi Karim,

You need to use the OPEN statement to open a file like:

OPEN "ABC.TXT"" For Input As #1

Then use INPUT, LINE INPUT or other functions to get the text in, use the EOF function to check for end-of-file. And lastly, use CLOSE to close the text file.

Good luck,
Jim
