    Access can actually directly link delimited TXT files without any extra step:

    In the Tables view rigth click and select "Link Tables..."
    Then a Link Dialog appears look for "File Type:" and  select "Text File" and select your file.
    Another dialog appears, foolow the instructions and that's all
