    Default Importing the metadata of a flat file that has no headers

    If we are importing a flat text file that has no headers, and no delimiters (with fixed-length data), and we happen to have the column names, column lengths, and datatypes in another file (for example, in an Excel file), can we import that information into the flat file transformation?

    In other words, can I import the info that goes onto the Fields tab of the Flat File Input, or do I have to type it all in? (I don't want to use the visual tool, using the divider bars, because there are too many fields and that is more error-prone.)
