It depends on what the delimiter is and if it uses end of line like a paragraph break to denote where one record ends an the next one starts. Generally speaking for data in a delimited text file to be moved to an Access database through Delphi the fields in the text file need to be as to what data type of each field is in a schema file. If the a field data type is a text fiels then that field would need in the schema file to be identified to what the lenght of the field is.

Something like this

Width of Field, Decimal Points, Starting cursor position

[CmmssTbl]
Filetype=Fixed
Field1=CopyDUKey,Long Integer,11,00,00
Field2=TravType,Char,01,00,11
Field3=RevType,Char,01,00,12
Field4=Provider,Char,10,00,13
Field5=ShortCode,Char,03,00,23
Field6=DomInt,Char,01,00,26
Field7=Origin,Char,03,00,27
Field8=Destination,Char,03,00,30
Field9=FromDate,TimeStamp,30,00,33
Field10=ThruDate,TimeStamp,30,00,63
Field11=Amount,Float,20,02,93
Field12=OneCap,Long Integer,11,00,113
Field13=RoundCap,Long Integer,11,00,124
Field14=MaxDiscount,Float,20,02,135
Field15=Where,Char,10,00,155
Field16=Class,Char,02,00,165
Field17=FareBasis,Char,08,00,167
Field18=NoCCCo,Char,19,00,175
CharSet=ascii
