Something like this should work. It would be easier to work with it you attached the file so we can work with it.
Hope I helped.
% Define the format of the data
formatSpec = '%s %s %f %f %f %q %s %s';
% Read the data using textscan with the format you defined
data = textscan(fid, formatSpec, 'Delimiter', '|', 'HeaderLines', 1);
fclose(fid);
% Convert the cell array to a table
table_data = table(data{1}, data{2}, data{3}, data{4}, data{5}, data{6}, data{7}, data{8}, ...
'VariableNames', {'Network', 'Station', 'Latitude', 'Longitude', 'Elevation', 'SiteName', 'StartTime', 'EndTime'});

T = readtable('data.txt', 'Delimiter','|', 'VariableNamingRule','preserve')
T = 7×8 table
