Import a text file and look for key Words

Hi EE

I am importing a text file into vb, which I can do

What I want to do is to have a look at the line in the text file and either split of filter different words and was looking at the best way to do it.

The information in the text file is like

advertising this is a general advertising query
general this is a general query
general this is a general query2
website this is a website query

so when I import the text file to the database I want col1 to be advertising and col2 to be "this is a general advertising query", then the next line col1 would be general and col2 would be "this is a general query" and so on, what would be the best way to achieve this

Thanks in advance

Paul

Hi Paulstott,

For each line you return you would need to do something like:

Dim lngPos as long
Dim Col1 As String
Dim Col2 As String
lngPos = Instr(MyLineFromFile," ")
Col1 = Left(MyLineFromFile,lngPos)
Col2 = Mid(MyLineFromFile,lngPos+1)
