I tried to use csv import but apparently it doesn’t support importing to long text fields. I have 1100 records I need to populate a long text field for and I would prefer to not attempt a copy and paste here with such a wide margin for error. Has anybody scripted this? I have the data to import in both xlsx and csv format, ready to go, just need to find a way to get it there intelligently and don’t see anything on the market right now.

If you turn off rich text formatting for the long text fields, you can import. But you will lose any existing formatting.

Be sure to report this as a bug to support@airtable.com.

That did it! But yup, would have been nice not to lose the rtf. Appreciate the comment!
