Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It depends on how the data is stored in the file. The easiest solution would probably be to open the file and read line by line using the Line Input statement.. something like this..

Dim Filenr as Integer
Dim sValue as String

Filenr = FreeFile
Open filename For Input As #Filenr
Do Until EOF(Filenr)
  Line Input #Filenr, sValue
Close #Filenr

How is this text file structured. In other words, how do you decipher between an email address and alias names?

you could look for a "www" string in the file, that would be a good place to start. then reed to the next chr(32) or space that you give you the email address
