Can't Import .CSV file into Access

I am having trouble importing a .csv file into access. The .csv file looks as follows if opened in Excel:

15.02.20      Lohnzahlung                  -70,3      12.02.20
15.02.20      Lohnzahlung                  -74,95      12.02.20
16.02.20      Rechnung Bettio Glarner      -100      30.01.20
20.01.20      Belast. E-Banking      -995.90      20.01.20

The problem seems to be with the coma (as we are using European currency format). I have tried with
OpenText, TransferSpreadSheet and even tried to read line by line using Input As #1. Nothing seems to be working. Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks Michael
