    CSV File Import

    I have a csv file that contains data, but there are no columns defined and the data is the same place all the time but spread out over many lines.

    Example of row:
    "Purchase Order No.","Customer ID","Salesperson ID","Shipping Method","Payment Terms","Req Ship Date"

    Another row would have bill to name and ship to name

    next row has their address
    next row has city, state and zip.

    Is there a way to input into access using vba.

    A sample file (or at least a copy-paste of several records from the file) would be helpful...

    1. Which data elements get imported?
    2. Where do they go?
