This is a somewhat stupid question... How do I read from a text file?

I have a tab delimited text file and I need to read in line by line the file.

I can not directly import the file because I need to make modifications to the fields.

Oh, don't forget a "Close #1" (minus the quotes) after the loop to close the file.
