csv file breaking after numeric characters and special characters

csv file breaking after numeric characters and special characters

(OP)
The plan

1 Access Database creates a csv file
2 Data is read by Reflections 2011 VBA code
3 Data is passed to the mainframe via Reflections 2011 VBA

The problem

1 Access Database creates the csv file (NO PROBLEM)
2 Data is read by Reflections 2011 VBA code (PROBLEM)

A) If leading numeric number, anything on the string following the digits would no be on the output. All information is passed via variables
Example: Input via csv file "3rd Floor". The output would be "3"
Example 2: Input via csv file "The 3rd Floor". The output would be "The 3"

B) If special characters, anything on the string following the character would no be on the output. All information is passed via variables
Example: Input via csv file "The_Floor". The output would be "The"
Example 2: Input via csv file "The_Upper_3rd_Floor". The output would be "The"

3 Data is passed to the mainframe via Reflections 2011 VBA (NO PROBLEM)

Questions

1 Why is numeric and special characters breaking up the string?
2 Is there a way to avoid the break up?
3 Any alternatives?

Thank You
