DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim - Specification name

Last Modified: 2013-11-27
I am having this code to import a file into a table... Problems happen with a Zip code field.. Because first records are numeric, Access assumes that the field is number. When it comes a Canadian postal code, the field errors.

I am thinking that the specification name field can be helpful to define the data structure so as to avoid the errors.

I have no clue for how to do that....
Any help
