I have an Access application that uses Access as the front end and back end.

It has an Import command button that executes the following command:

DoCmd.TransferText acImportFixed, "monthlychecks spec", "importMonthlyChecks", filenm, False

Not exactly, but it's easy to do. Read the file with a StreamReader, parse it based on the format, then use SqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery() to insert the data.

If you want example code to parse a tab-delimited, CSV or fixed-length file, there are plenty of examples available, probably on this site.

You could StreamReader.ReadLine() and a Substring to parse the columns & values for a fixed-length file, for example.

Good luck!

I almost forgot - once you know how to process the files, just put the whole thing in a method and viola! you have your command.
