If it's just a one-time thing, edit the file, changing the multiple characters to singles. Save the file with another name so you don't lose the original. You don't even have to keep the modified file after the import.

The 'Text Import' dialog has a 'Merge delimiters' check box. Click on the help button in that dialog. That may be what you need.
