can you at least attach a sample of what your data file looks like.  That
is not that large of a file and it would depend on exactly how it is
formatted.  Is it a CSV, tab, space, semicolon, etc. separated file?  What
exactly have you tried and what were the results?  A sample of the data
would help to determine how you might want to read it.

What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
Tell me what you want to do, not how you want to do it.
