Attached are 2 comma delimited results files (Sample) (First file are Rows 1 to 110 and the Second file are rows 111 to 206)  in of a group of 59k comma delimited results files.  In column A are 3 letters (H,R and S)  to identify each row of data.  The first is H which has in the row 2 fields that I need to assign/paste  to each row in the S Rows.  I do not need to do anything to the R rows.   I need to assign/past data from C1(SAR)  to Rows L12 to  L110  and also assign/paste data from  D1(20100901) to Rows M12 to M110.

The next file starts on Row 111 and would need to assign/paste  Data in Cell C111(SUF)  to rows L121 to L206 and assign/past  Data(20100901)  in D111 to Rows M121 to M206.

I need the above query/vba code to do this to all 59k results.
 
The result I am wanting would look like Sample 2.

H Row is always 1 row
R rows can be anywhere from 5 to 14 rows
S rows vary and could be anywhere from 45 rows to 170 rows.

Do you like to have results in Access table or in csv file?
How files can be sorted (how can we determine files sequence)?

This doesn't look like structured and normalized data that you would put into a database.  Maybe a spreadsheet, but not a database.  What are you trying to do with the data in a database?

To me it sure loots like normalized data.  

Column A is the record type. Column B has the data to link the R record to the related S records.

If imported into a normalized structure you would have three tables.

H (1) --> (many) R () -->> (many) S

This would be easy to do with VBA code in Access. I will put together a sample.

I thought if if could be put in like Sample 2, I could query out all the S rows.

If you take Boyd's (TheHighTechCoach) example and add this query:
 
SELECT "S" AS S, tblS.S_1, tblS.s_2, tblS.S_3, tblS.S_4, tblS.S_5, tblS.S_6, tblS.S_7, tblS.S_8, tblS.S_9, tblS.S_10, tblH.H_2, tblH.H_3
FROM (tblH INNER JOIN tblR ON tblH.HRecordID = tblR.R_HRecordID) INNER JOIN tblS ON tblR.RRecordID = tblS.S_RRecordID;

Open in new window

it will be expected result
