Any reason you are using export in the first place? Are they in separate databases?

I would simply create a temporary table with just the 2 columns, export that, then import into the destination, and use it to insert into the final table.

create table t as select col1, col2 from orig_tbl;

-- export t
-- import t

insert into new_tbl(colx, coly) select col1, col2 from t;

etc.
