Creating pools using .txt files

I have downloaded question bank files from Pearson to a .txt file using TestGen.  I have worked with Pearson and have gone through their explicit instructions to do this for Blackboard.  I then go into Blackboard and set up a pool.  When I submit the .txt file this is the error message I get:

Question upload complete

A parse error occurred on line 2. Processing of other questions continued uninterrupted.
A parse error occurred on line 3. Processing of other questions continued uninterrupted.
A parse error occurred on line 4. Processing of other questions continued uninterrupted.
A parse error occurred on line 5. Processing of other questions continued uninterrupted.

It says the upload is complete but there are no questions in the pool. I ended up typing in all the questions.  Definitely something I do not want to do every unit.  Pearson says the problem in with Blackboard and they cannot help.  Has anyone else gotten a parse error and have suggestions on how I can make this work?

 

Thanks, Susan
