Please specify what Shapefile you want as output (points, lines, polygons) also what type of information are in your text file/field data. –  maning Apr 27 '12 at 6:19
    
a shape-file conists of more than one individual file. please specify, what you data you have (geometry-data: Points, lines, polygons? or other-data, aka non-geometry-data like no of people living in each district...) and what you want to create: a shape-file geometry e.g. mydata.shp which may contain points or lines or polygons. or do you want to create a non-geometry-data-file for usage with a shapfile, e.g. mydata.dbf. for such data acutally the old dbase-fileformat is used –  Kurt Apr 27 '12 at 6:29
