    I imported data from a text file by making use of 'Get external
    data'..'Import' & then defining the corresponding feilds. Now i tried adding
    another text file of the same kind, but i had to define all the fields again.
    Is there any way that i can import the data from the text file directly to
    the already existing access file?

    I appriciate your help.Thanks!!

    One way is to use File... Get External Data... Link, and then run an
    Append query into your existing table.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
