flat file first record removal

Hi ,
I am having a problem in processing flatfiles.
The first record of my first file is the column names
i am using convertToValues which gives me a document list which i am passing to a batch insert jdbc adapter service.
Problem is I am getting columns also in the document list as first record.
currently i am handling it using coding
I dont want this . Is there any want to handle it in flat file schema itself

just declar the header line a record itself and don’t map it. As column headers typically are constant recognition shouldn’t be a problem.
