I have a long csv file but the rows are not identifiable by your classic character return.

its identified by a *

is there anyway to take this csv file and you a replace function to have the notepad file
have actual breaks in the line where the * used to be?

Rename the file type from csv to txt and use the import wizard.

It would help us if you posted a reasonable sample of the data.

Alternatively, you might use something like Notepad++ to change the * to CrLf

Even if it's .csv i believe you can change the delimiter in the Excel import wizard to * or any other character with which your records are separated.
