    Ugh...the way I see it...forget about the Specification4 stuff. Make yourself a Schema.ini file and place that there instead. You can setup whatever structure you like that way. You just need to make sure the Schema.ini file (which is a simple text file) is located where your csv text files are located.

    See Access help regarding the Schema.ini file and the TransferText method.

    (just my opinion though)
