Grabbing CSV text from a web viewer

I'm grabbing a CSV file from a web viewer, scraping the content and stuffing it into a field. That works fine.

 

I then need to export the file to CSV. When I do the export, the carriage returns aren't being honored. When I want to import the file back into FileMaker it does it as one long field rather than the 30-40,000 records that it actually is.

 

File is hosted with a 3rd party company, not sure if I can use any plugins on the server. Would like to set this up as a recurring import that runs daily.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Edit - running FileMaker Pro Advanced 12. Mac OS X.
