I am currently using 'DoCmd.TransferText' to import text files using the import specifications to bring the text files into a table.  Is there a way to import text files without using the DoCmd function?

You could write your own file handler in VBA using the filesystemobject.

Why is transfertext a problem?

In the future, the code is going to get converted to .net and I'm told that .net doesn't support the DoCmd function.  I was asked to look for an alternative.

.net doesn't look anything like vba.
Nothing you write will convert to .net.
