To all,
Can anyone tell me (preferably with sample code, if possible), what is the fastest way to import a .txt file into a predefined table in access via Visual Basic 6.
My .txt file contains roughly 365,876 records with two fields – Barcode, Price.  This has to be imported into an Access table also containing two fields Barcode (text), Price (Number, Double, Fixed, 2 decimal places).  
The .txt file is comma delimited.  I’m using Access XP and Visual Basic 6.0 as the front-end.
Thanks in advance for any help as, this project needs to be ready for Monday morning
