If your using EXCEL make sure you add;
Database products EXCEL 1
this will get rid of any EXCEL formating problems such as quotes and
CR/LF and other problems associated with EXCEL during importing or file
Then do a re-import or better yet file transfer all the data and wa-la
the data appears as intended.
