Hi,

If the data is in a single line and there are not more than will fit in a single row in Excel just import in normally as a CSV which puts the data in one row and multiple columns.

Highlight the row of data and Ctrl-C to copy
Pick the row where you want the column of data to begin and right click
Choose Paste Special and then Transpose

Your data will be in Column format.
You can then add the "Summer" data in the column next to it.

Hi,

Do you always have the same format in the CSV file, i.e 5 values per row?

If so you will need to link the file and insert one record for each value into the table along with your desired ItemName = "Summer".

You can use VBA or quickly create 5 successive queries to do this.

If you need help with this let me know.

Regards,

Bill
