I have several txt files that I need to import into a SQL database. I don't control the export and some of the files contain text fields where CR LF or just LF is used as a line break. This is causing a problem because the row delimiter is CR LF. The file does use " as a text qualifier (and embedded delimiters are escaped by doubling up the ""), but I am getting errors when I import the file using SSIS and a bulk insert task. The challenge I'm facing is it is difficult to troubleshoot based on the error since I can't tell exactly which rows are triggering the errors. I'm using Notepad++ to view the txt files and can see the LF and CR LF characters but they still begin new lines so I don't know which row actually contains the offending character(s) as reported in the errors.

Can someone help me figure out how to successfully import a txt file that uses " as a text qualifier, <tab> as a column delimiter, and CR LF as the row delimiter where CR LF or just LF is contained within some columns? Here are the errors on the 4 files that are giving me fits:
