    Where are you importing it from? What is the file type of the source? What procedure are you using to import it? What version of OS X and what version of Excel are you using?

    Are you sure it is a text file. A Word document for example is not a text file, because it contains formatting information.

    Are you using the text import facility in Excel from Data>Get External Data>Import Text File... ?
