.txt dump is not working correctly

 

I am trying to add 2200 files to an act database and it says in the wizard it has that many.  When I click finish it only adds about 15-18.  I also tried creating a fresh new database with the 2200 or so contacts and the same thing happened it added 16.  I'm wondering if there could be something in the excel file I am converting to .txt that is causing this problem, I have never had this happen before.

Per Vinnie, David Vaudreuil is retired. New contact is Greg Brictrom Ext. 106.  Jimmy Owens, CNC Mgr. [jimmyo@ancorp.com]  Craig Bystrom, ? [craigb@ancorp.com] no longer in purchasing.  David Vaudreuil, Owner=at IMTS 2008.  UCC: 04-Feb-08 SALE New MORI-SEIKI NL-2500S.  "B" Act:  Okuma, Mori, HE&M Saw user.

 

I seems to be stoping when it sees this...  I'm trying to get a lot of information into the last results section, it also seems that maybe this old database was saved with some sort of Act grouping that may be causing a problem.

Shoot I deleted that section in excel and it works. I really want to keep all that information as it is valuable but there has to be a character or something act doesn't seem to like. I'd love to do a search and remove if anyone knows what that character might be.
