According to http://community.thingspeak.com/documentation/api/#view_data
txt is an optional format for Retrieving the Last Entry in Channel Feed, however, I'm only able to successfully complete the request with either json, xml or csv - but NOT txt. Why?

That was an error in our documentation that has been fixed now. Since there may be multiple fields for a "last" response, we can't return a single value, so the "txt" format only works when the field number is specified like this: http://api.thingspeak.com/channels/9/field/1/last.txt .
