SSIS package delete first row

Hello,

I have a .txt file that contains A LOT of data that I need to import to my sql server database after some treatment. I have a few questions about what I can achieve with SSIS.

First one is that this .txt has a useless first line with the date and then the headers are in the second row... If I manually delete this row and save as a new txt I can add it as a new flat file source correctly, but if I try to treat the original txt (skip header row, skip data row) I can't make it turn into columns, they are simply in one (examples of how it should be and how it gets are attached).

Other question: This table it should generate from the file has lots of information in one place (that's why the high number of columns). I want to keep my database organized, so I would have one table for each category of information on that file. Is it possible to open this file only once, and then make some queries to separate each data and insert in the right table?

Sorry for the possibly stupid questions, but I never used SSIS before and I really need this asap =/


Thanks in advance!!
