TextFileStartRow Property [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]
Returns or sets the row number at which text parsing will begin when you import a text file into a query table. Valid values are integers from 1 through 32767. The default value is 1. Read/write Long.
Use this property only when your query table is based on data from a text file (with the QueryType property set to xlTextImport).
This example sets row 5 as the starting row for text parsing in the query table on the first worksheet in the first workbook, and then it refreshes the query table.
Set shFirstQtr = Workbooks(1).Worksheets(1) Set qtQtrResults = shFirstQtr.QueryTables _ .Add(Connection := "TEXT;C:\My Documents\19980331.txt", _ Destination := shFirstQtr.Cells(1,1)) With qtQtrResults .TextFileParseType = xlDelimited .TextFileStartRow = 5 .TextFileTabDelimiter = True .Refresh End With
