import txt file to access 2007

import txt file to access 2007 Icon
I am trying to import a text file to a database but I am getting 3 rows for each record because the txt file is setup the same way. How do I fix the issue?

txt file stores the data like this:

line 1 name ssn dob
line 2 add city zip
line 3 pcp nurse

those 3 lines belong to the same patient and they're imported to access table the same way.
 

Importing .txt files

Importing .txt files Icon
I am trying to import a .txt file into an Access 2007 table. The file contains values in Euro format. How do I import them so they so as a value in US format.

This is how it is in the file: 1.200,00
I want it to import as: 1,200.00

Can it be done easily. I tried changing the specs to show the decimal as a comma, and it works for anything under a thousand. Anything over a thousand does not get imported
 

Importing text file performance question

Importing text file performance question Icon
I am importing a pipe delimited .txt file (500k records) into Access via VBA. I'k using the Split function to both split the .txt file into records and the records into fields.

While importing the .txt data, I clean the data by skipping some fields and also some records. Is there something I can do to speed the process?

Would it be faster (much faster) to first import the entire .txt file into Excel, clean the data there with VBA and then import the outputted .txt file into Access using a saved import routine?

Export Access Table to .txt type SDF

Export Access Table to .txt type SDF Icon
I need help in exporting MS Access table to .txt file in SDF as this file is to be used on some other platform where only text file standard data format I.e. with line return and eof can be read.
Earlier I was using Dbase table and used to pass the command copy to file.txt type sdf and this used to do the trick for me.

Really need some some help as I'm stuck here as I was upgrading my project from foxpro to VB using Access tables

How to Create a Microsoft Access Macro to Import Information from a Text (.txt) File

How to Create a Microsoft Access Macro to Import Information from a Text (.txt) File Icon
Macros are operations used in Microsoft Access in order to automate functions in databases. They can be used to open reports, run queries, update the databases and import from various file formats such as Excel (.xls), database, (.dbf), and text (.txt).
This article will explain, in a step-by-step format, how to import information from a text file, format the information for Access, and create the macro so each step will not need to be created every day. This will save you time and put some of the database operations into the hands of the end-users and freeing you to do other things. Prior to creating the macro, the creation and saving of the import specification will be explained.

I am relatively new to using MS Access and have two very simple queries below.

Using VBA, how do I

1) Import 3 txt files all saved in a specific location with different file names into a specific table I have already created in Access. The data in the text files is pipe delimited.

2) Export data in Access tables into an Excel file and split the tables into different worksheets according to table name in the same workbook.
