How to import ASCII text

ASCII or plain text must include a header line denoting field names. An example of the ideal format is as follows:

"FirstName", "LastName", "Company", "Age"
"Phil", "Roach", "Ability Plus Software", 37
"John", "Speak", "", 45
"Charles",  "Stuart", "House of Stuart", 498


You can check the format of the data you are trying to import using Notepad (Start/Programs/Accessories/Notepad). If necessary, manually add the field names at the top of the data.
