Inputing a specific line from a text file into a variable

P: 22
Hi

Excuse my ignorance but I am trying to write a very simple program. It needs to be simple because of my lack of knowledge. Anyway I would like to input a specific line from a textfile without having to load all the previous lines first into unused variables before I get to the line I want. For example this is a copy of one of my text files

1
10
A Name

This textfile has 3 usable lines of information and I require only the second line. At the moment I am having to do something like this.

Input #1, Unused Variable 1
Input #1, Unused Variable 2
Line Input #1, Variable Used

I am using a Line Input statement as the line sometimes consists of characters which get lost with a simple Input statement.
Any hints would be appreciated.

Thanks
