Hello there,

I have limited coding skills in VBA.
I have used extensive MS Visual Basic help to copy and paste some code and it seem to work with Excel files.

But I would like to move away from by converting .xls files to .csv files.
I have done that and it works.

Now I would like to know how I can select various data values from converted .csv files. I would then like to dump data in Access data base.

I have tried Mid, VBcompare, Trim functions together and it seems to work.
Is there another clean, efficient and easier way to do the this??

For example how would I select measured value 0.996 from row 21 that starts with words "static accuracy" ??

My code is below. To make it simple I have only posted code for one data element that I pikced.

I would certainly appreciate if someone can help.

I have also attached one of my .csv file.
