What you can do is just do an import of the data into an access database from
the text file. You can make the text file an ODBC File source and have it
import into SQL or Access. I have does this with Access but you have to
manually execute it to import. You could probably create a macro that will
automatically do this every hour or so. With SQL, I have not tried it but
with SQL Features, I think it would be possible to set up a "replication" from
the Text file to the database.
