Great tutorial as always!
When using 'GetRows' to populate an array with the CSV Connection String (to retrieve data from a CSV file), when a column contains mixed data types is there away to force VBA to return all the data from the column as text instead of returning some of the values as nulls?

You might find this video useful https://www.wiseowl.co.uk/vba-macros/videos/vba-ado-net-recordsets/tab-delimited-adodb/
It explains how to use a schema.ini file to control the data types of columns imported from text files.
I hope it helps!
