Can PivotTables Use Delimited Text Files as a Source?

Hi Experts,
Quick question.

I’m currently developing a report model using PivotTables with VBA to hide the filter functionality as majority of end-users are uncomfortable with PivotTables, but I must include drill-down ability for the more experienced end users.

End-Users will typically have low end machines and poor internet connections. So, source that is transferred as tiny Pipe Delimited Text files that are downloaded from a remote server.
Is it possible for Excel 2003 to access these text files as a direct source for PivotTables? At present, the data lives a worksheet and I'm aiming to keep filesize to the absolutely minimum.
Any thoughts?
