yes this is from a cisco ASA and I can't change the format. i do need to put this in a datatbase .
 lines 3 through 13 would cover one complete entry.

Index, Hashing, NAC, Vlan Mapping, and vlan data is not needed

Thanks

I can think of some ways to make this work, but I dont have an exact code for it so let me explain the basics:

1: Create your import specification
2: When you perform the import, you need two pieces of info: which text file to import and what table to insert into.
3: Set up the code with what text to filter out.
4: Read text from the file and put it into a String
5: Put the String into a "insert into" sql statement
6: Repeat to endOfFile
