    If that's a tab separator: Import as CSV, use tab as separator.

    Hi Marco,

    I tried it, but don´t solve the problem,  this file is a .txt file, and the spaces isn't tab spaces!

    I would import the file in excel first (as the import txt wizard there has a "fixed width" flag) and save the preprocessed file as xls/csv

    If you want to stay in RM I would play with one of the many operators that allow using RegEx to extract your values from each line.

    Hope this helps :)

    You can use the "Generate Extract" operator..

    This should do, but you might have to adjust the Start/Offset based on your original file
