Help importing .csv.tsv file to FileMaker Pro Trial version


     I am new to FileMaker. Am trying to see if right for me. I will need to bring 52,000 names from a contact software program. I can only export about 3000 names or records at a time. The file is exported as csv.tsv. Two of the fields are long( resumes). When I import as csv I do not get the whole field. Whan I import as csv.tsv I get the whole field with the all the text of a resume but I have quotation marks around everything.When I import as .xls I only get two lines of a field that should have many lines of text ( again resumes; I am a headhunter) So I am darned if I do and darned if I don't. One way has no quotes but not all the data; another way has all the data but I get quotes. Support was no help. I am not sure I will be able to use this program if I can't solve this issue. Someone,please?
