hi everyone, i finally got the code below to work with my text file and database but i was wandering if there is a way to add a constant value to an extra constant field to all entries made by this import, like right now all text files added have three fields and the code places them in the right place but i would like to add another field to the import , like field4 = "1" how would i do this

many thanks

code is listed below
