    manipulating text files before importing

    I have a two tab workbook, one is a form (sheet 1) one is my import sheet (sheet 2). The import sheet (sheet 2) has cells linked to the form (sheet 1)that fill the appropriate cells when a text file is imported to sheet 2. My problem is that through operator input the text file I import onto sheet 2 sometimes will have an extra line of text in the file and throws off my links. So my question is, is it possible to write a vb procedure that can find a specific line in a text file then delete it before it is dumped to its import destination with out changing the original text file. All I'm experianced with is macro recording and very basic vb. Any help would be appreciated.

    A macro can open, modify, create, save, delete text files without 1st importing the file into Excel.

    Once a text file s opened the macro could be used to place data from the file into Excel without having to modify the file, save it and the import into Excel

    You would need to give more details about the text file or better is to attach a copy of the text file & workbook & male sure you explain what line in the text file is causing the problem
