Hi Stefani,

Using this method for creating a directory doesn't work very well in InDesign, however there is a script that you can run after importing the csv file to help fix things.

Try adding this script to InDesign and running it on your imported table: http://www.scriptopedia.org/en/js-indesign/126-csvtotable-en.html
