I suppose that means DTS is out of the question then.

Is the file coming from a unix source? If so the row terminators will be different. I would suggest reading the file with the FSO or with OPEN FOR READ, LINE INPUT methods.

If your file is delimited in some way then you it is ok to get a row at a time, then you can format the data into the correct parts.

Then use something like

insql = "insert into cust values('" & trim(left(str,6) &  & "','" & trim(instr(str,6,8)) & "')" etc.
  MDIForm1.dfwConn.Execute insql
