Base is our database component. It is very, very underdeveloped,
nevertheless underestimated. Even the worst database tool does a better
database job than the best spreadsheet can do.
Since nobody ever uses Base for plain text databases, here is another
approach without Base and without macro programming:
1) Prepare a sheet template and format entire columns to your liking,
according to the incoming fields.
2) Open the text file in a text editor.
3) Copy all.
4) Open a new spreadsheet from the prepared template, paste and fill out
the text import dialog (US English, special numbers, delimiter).
