DoCmd.TransferText VBA versus Wizard

100+
P: 332
I am having issues importing a space delimited file with DoCmd.TransferText.
I created a specification name through File->Get External Data->Import.
It all works fine when I import the file via the MS Access Import wizard and use the import specification name but when I replicate the same process through
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. DoCmd.TransferText acImportDelim, "202DailyListImportSpecification", "tmp_202", cleanfile, False
that does not cooperate at all. The first 11 fields from the text file are imported in the first field of the table.
In either case, I do the import in a newly created table.

Hi twinnyfo
It has been so long, I had to go back to the code to see how I solved it.
Each line of text was right padded with about 250 blank spaces. After I trimmed the lines, it worked ok. It's odd.

Thanks anyway.
