Excel needs to open a fixed length format file

I have a fixed length format file that needs to be modified. I would like to open the file using excel and then edit it and then save it back in the same format.

Can anyone tell me what is the easiest way to do this.

You should be able to open the file with a fixed field format.  Can you open the file correctly?
Revision to method 3:

The following should be corrected:

Dim AllRecords(lRecordCount) As MyRecordDef

As follows:

Dim AllRecords() As MyRecordDef

Redim AllRecords(lRecordCount-1)
