Here's what I've tried already:

- CSV file conversion
- No leading or trailing spaces in column names
- No non-printable characters in column name

One observation notice, when the column headers row is completed deleted, the import WORK!
Adding a column header one-at-a-time is cumbersome because there's like 120 columns.

Anything you can suggest?

save the current file to a 'generic' file, File2Import.txt
attach the file as a table. (it will assign all fields as field1, field2, etc)
build an append query using this table to add it to your target table.
in the query assign all fields where to append to.
put this query in a macro.

so the steps would be:
1. save the next text file and overwrite the File2Import.txt file
2. run import query.
done.
