Thanks Andre,

Yes the columns already exist.

If I set pFirstLineContainsHeaders to false, the field is populated  
with data but the columns are set to Col 1, Col 2 etc.

If I then set set pFirstLineContainsHeaders to true (with the columns  
already set to Col 1, Col 2, etc.) the columns remain unchanged but  
the body of the text is empty.

I did download the Manual. That is where I got this information from.  
Very perverse.
