You have a number of options to consider in transfering a text file into a database table. One option is to simply link to the text file - the version of Access you are using may have some impact on how well that works. If you need it to be an Access table, then you could simply run an append query once you have linked to the table.
Another option would be to use the TransferText capability in VBA to reach out the the file and import it into an Access table which already exists. That may be the most straightforward approach.
It you really want to use ADO, which is the most difficult and doesn't buy you anything, you would have to either link to the table as in the first option, and then loop through each of the records, writing the corresponding record out using ADO, or you could do a READ from a text file, and parse each record, and then use ADO to build the table record by record.
My approach to all things database is to use the simplest technique - unless I'm doing something as a learning exercise, which I usually try to avoid, sometimes unsuccessfully.Wendell
