    Transferring formated data to raw data (2003 sp2)

    Hi,

    For analyzing data I need to go from a formatted list back to raw data. Please see the attached file for an example of the data i received and the way I need it. I know I can copy down the lines an then remove the unwanted lines. That is how I did the example. But I have several 100.000 records to process this way. The data needs to be imported into access for further analysis.

    Does anyone have a clue how I can get this done?

    Regards Marcel

    These data *must* have come from a database originally, so you should try to get the raw data from the source instead of spending a lot of effort to re-convert the formatted data back into usable shape.

    Hi Hans,

    Thanks Marcel
