​Purely as a guess, ".rpt" really seems to be short for "report". Which I
would guess indicates that this is some sort of file which was originally
physically printed to be read by a human. So I would _guess_ that perhaps
it is column oriented and might be readable using read.fwf() .Or course, it
if really is a "report" there are those irritating page headers & footers,
perhaps along with a summary at the end which would need to be ignored. The
OP really needs to cut'n'paste (NO HTML PLEASE!) about 10 lines for us to
all "eyeball".​
