I have a text file of the following format:

Author Title Edition/Type Qty Cond Price
A.A.WORLD SERV Alcoholics Anonymous 5 U 1.75
1-893007-17-0 4TH 01 PB

As you can see, the information has moved to a new line causing import problems.
How can I import this file in excel in the following format?

Author Title Edition/Type Qty Cond Price
A.A.WORLD SERV Alcoholics Anonymous 1-893007-17-0 4TH 01 PB 5 U 1.75

Please help!
