Hello,

Have you tried right clicking on the txt file and selecting Open With and then selecting Microsoft Word? If it is not in the liet then add it using the option at the bottom...

In your other thread you are asking how to save firefox documents to txt files. Are these 2 related? Can you explain what you are doing?

the way the question is asked ,it means more that just opening the file in Word .I asks "How can I import data of a text file into a ms word file" to me this means ,im working on a word file and i want to add some text form another source to the word file ,i do use MS Word ,and have imported text from another source into a document, but i'am no expert ,and i don't think there is any quick way of doing this , how unorganized would the file actually end up being .
so having said that you likely mean you want to change the .txt files into .docx files .not going to be quick and easy either ,at best you would have to open each one in Word and ten save as word file.me thinks

@caperjack: I agree about the improt, but depending what we are talking about here the answer could either be a macro, or an ODBC pointing to a txt file and a datasource for that ODBC or a macro with OLEDB or whatever.
