Can you post a sample of the data you are trying to parse and the code you have so far? That would be a good start

This will get the values in to variables where you can do whatever you need on the data access end:

Private Sub Button4_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button4.Click
		Dim lines As List(Of String) = New List(Of String)
		lines.AddRange(System.IO.File.ReadAllLines("C:\file.txt"))

		For Each line In lines
			Dim bank1 As String = line.Substring(0, 6)
			Dim bank2 As String = line.Substring(6, 6)
			System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Break()
		Next
	End Sub
