Using a text file as a datasource with spaces in the column names.

How do I query the text file using a SELECT statement if the column names (headers) have spaces.  For example, I want to select all task ID's from the text file.  However, the column name is "Task ID".  The following statement will not work:  "SELECT Task ID from [" + text file + "]".  Basically what I'm asking is how to use a Select SQL statement when the column names have spaces?

Thank-you
