    automatically create fields

    lauriehughes

      I have a tab deliminated file that has heaps of headings, then the data under each heading.

      It will take me forever to make fields and name them the same as the heading line in the tab deliminated file I have.

       

      Is there a way to quickly make the first line of the tab deliminated file( ie the headings ) into the field names of a table?

      I cant seem to see anything in applescript that could handle this.

       

      best i can come up with is to import it and then copy and paste the first record up into the field name.

      But I have to do this sort of process every few months and its driving me mad.

       

      thanks in advance
