Default Connecting to dat file from access or VB

Hi there,
I'm trying to connect to a dat file used by auction sentry (popular ebay bid snipping program). I need to have a linked table of some sort, that upon oppening the access database connects to that .dat file. I have the layout for that dat file as it is a fixed width file. The import wizard almost works, but I have to rename the file to .txt file and even then some of the fields come out as #num. Please help!!!

I can do this in either access or VB, please help meee......

-Shai
