Thanks Kevin!  That's the issue with using acronyms.  

Jimmy - Just reading the information provided in the link by Kevin, it should be pretty straight forward.  Since it is apparently a plain text file you should be able to import it to Access with minimal issues.

Have you tried it?  

The last few Developer courses deal with files and input / output.  I freely admit I've been so busy at work I'm behind in the course work myself,  but it might be in reading the course pages that those courses will help you as well with this.

Looks like standard text files. I cover reading/writing text files starting in Access Developer 30. You'd just need to parse out the fields and then use either SQL or a recordset to add them.
