Import Text File into Acess using a macro
Posted on 1998-12-18
I have a macro to import a text file into Access. I am using the Transfer Text Action in the macro section. Under Transfer Type I have chosen the Import Delimineted Type.
The .txt file I am importing must be a | (pipe or pike?) delimeted file. When it imports to a new table, all the columns from the text file remain in Field 1 of my table, all seperated by the | symbol. how can I have my macro specify the | type for the delimeted function.
The obvious solution of changing the text file to a file type such as Excel will not be possible in this case.
