There are two methods to add a text file to a MS access
1) Link the text file. Go to File/Get External Data/ Link Tables. In the link file screen change the file type to Text file and then browse to the text file and select your text file. MS Access will prompt you to give the specs of the file when you are linking it. 2) Import the file to an access table. Go To File/Get external Data/ Import. In the screen change the file type at the bottom to text, and select your text file.
