Importing text to Access via VB ADO data control

I have an ASCII Text file, 7 fields.  I need to import to an MS Access table.  This  will happen weekly, the old data must be deleted in the Access table.  I wish to do this using Visual Basic 6.0 and the ADO data control.  Can anyone help out with the code.

I am just learning Visual Basic, so I need some help.

Thanks in Advance.

1. add a reference to MSACC8.OLB
2. strFileName will specify the path\file etc. to import
3. if it doesn't work i have somthing more efficient. mail me ariell@clal-ins.co.il

Public Sub CreateAccessFile()
 
  Dim objAccess As New Access.Application
 
  If Len(Dir(strFileName)) Then Kill (strFileName)
  objAccess.Visible = False
  objAccess.NewCurrentDatabase strFileName
  objAccess.DoCmd.TransferText , , "Table1", FileName, True
 
  Set objAccess = Nothing
 
  Kill (strTempFileName)
 
End Sub
