Could someone lend me a hand with this please?

I'd like to create a form similar to the ones below and populate it with 
the information provided in the attached file:

  -----------------------------------------
|    *********      *********       ***** |
| TE * N1195 *  TAM * A0001 *  AUTH * 1 * |
|    *********      *********       ***** |
|                              PLAN * 0 * |
|                                   ***** |
  -----------------------------------------

  -----------------------------------------
|    *********      *********       ***** |
| TE * N1220 *  TAM * D0900 *  AUTH * 0 * |
|    *********      *********       ***** |
|                              PLAN * 1 * |
|                                   ***** |
  -----------------------------------------

TE should be a drop-down list identifying all TEs in the file. In this 
case the values would be B1195, D1121, N1120, and N1172. Likewise, TAM 
should be a drop-down list of all TAMs in the file where both allowed 
and planned not equals to zero. For example, when TE N1172 is selected 
the only option available in the TAM field should be D0900.

I'm not sure how to begin. How do I design the form? Should parse the 
text file placing the required information into a data structure? What 
structure would be most suitable to hold this information?

Thanks,
Andrew

D doesn't support GUI natively, you should use a library.
