Importing external data

I have some external data that I’d like to see if I can import en mass. It starts as a FileMaker file with two only two fields: a short text field (it’s an abstract) and a long text field (a plain-text article).

I can export it in a number of ways, but is there a way that I can import these records such that each record is a distinct rich text object, where the short field is its name and the long field is its content?

I can import (for instance) a tab-delimited file, but the in-record carriage returns are missing and DT won’t let me add them back in.

You can add line breaks to records by pressing Option-Enter.
