Hi,

I have a notepad which has around 120 columns and 800 rows. When i try to import this data into xls I am getting only some of the colums in the first row and only one row of data is being populated. Can you please help me on this ?

What method are you currently using to import the file?

How are your data columns delimited?

So what does it have?

Are the 'columns' the same width in characters? If so, maybe using 'fixed width' would work.
