Base Elements - Reading text file?

I am using the Base Elements plug to read in a text file. The text file is 1.8 MB in size. When I try to read it using the BE_ReadTextFromFile() function and when I attempt to read the file into a memory variable or a field, I end up with a beach ball and FMA12 locks up.

 

Is there a way to read part of the file instead of the whole thing. I'm guessing that FM is having problems reading in the whole file at one shot. I'm using the same code to read in a 282KB file with no problems.
