... it diddn't help at first, but I just couldn't see the wood for the trees .
I've looked up every web site in Chritendom, so it seems, but I could never find anyhting clear cut, then it hit me ... there is the word LINE before the INPUT command in these examples you sent me to, I just couldn't see it, I was looking for parameters and delimiters AFTER the INPUT command ... DOH !!!
So to summarise for anybody with a similar problem :
Input #1, MyDataRec << delimts input at commas
Line Input #1, MyDataRec << dives you the whole line
