I've a piped delimiter file in csv format. I want to import that file to ms access thru VBA. But don't know how to seperate "|" into different columns.
- Column headings are not required.
- First column should be "text" datatype and remaing should be "long integer".

I tried  DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim....
But all imported data comes to one column only with "|" seperators. I want each fields to go to a seperate column based on the "|" seperator.

You have to create an Import Spec by doing the import manually once and saving all the settings you use.

Click on the Advanced button in the File>GetexternalData>import and you can then apply your settings and save them with a name you use in your transfertext command.
