Title

import tab delimitated rtf .txt file

Post

     I am trying to import a txt file I have created which is tab deliminated.

     I go to FILE>IMPORT RECORDS> FILE

     navigate to my tab deliminated rtf txt file created by text edit on my mac.

     there is one line of tab del text but I get 7 records listed to import with things like this 

      

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\cocoartf1038\cocoasubrtf360

      

Where am I going wrong?

I am happy to format it however needed as I intent to have an applescript create the file.

thanks
