Do you have SharePoint Enterprise? You can use the Business data  Catalog to create a data connection to a 'flat file  data source', and then display that data in a Data Viewer web part.

If you don't have access to the Business Data Catalog you can use SharePoint Designer to create a Data View using a data connection, although you may need to load the flat file into a database.
