Importing via Excel first and then Access i don't see any issues...just some records missing the "OBS" prefix...
I have attached my import to check it against yours.

I linked it using "|" as the separator, and saw no errors.

Some records where slightly different in length, so changed the field delimiter. My attempt was like Gustav's. Produced 9 fields.
